flare control: 4
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta AF 50 F1.7|
Minolta AF 135 F2.8
Sony DT16-50 F2.8 SSM
|price paid:||90EUR (used)|
- compact lens
|negative:||- not so wide on APS-C|
|comment:||PREVIOUS: My copy is definitively not so sharp, even stopped down is far from the results of the other lenses. Maybe the lenses are a bit disaligned but i don't know... (READ BELOW)|
EDIT: I used this lens with my A77 and the sharpness problem went away... maybe it was a backfocus problem or similar with the A200, that can explain why it showed at all apertures.
Now the sharpness compares very well to the 16-50/2.8 and it's only a bit less than 50/1.7.
This lens has very beautiful colors and bokeh at wide open, it's lightweight and small enough to be very confortable to carry with.
