3.8 on 250mm - It says everything. I use this lens on A6300 as well as  on A7II. Focal lenght on APSC is 250*1,5= 375mm but this lens is not stabilized. With in body stabilization on A7II works very well but it is full frame so focal lenght stays on 250mm 


Very very very big and heavy lens. It is almost impossible to do not bring tripod with you.


Used on moon photography, wild photography. Very sharp on 3.8 but very short depth of field.
