flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||18-55mm SAM sony|
50mm Macro minolta
|price paid:||75 USD (used)|
Easy to fix.
nice saturation of colors
|negative:||On APS the crop factor converts to a 75 mm, so, it is not a good lens for interiors.|
This lens is more than 30 years old, some copies need maintenance.
49mm filter ring.
|comment:||This is the kit lens from the Maxxum 7000, the first lens to be AF, is better than the kit 18-55mm SAM ofered by sony.|
It has a nice colors and little distortion on an APS, this lens is a good all around situation just to peek a place.
I use this lens to travel and explore new locations instead of other lenses.
My copy have oil on the blades, but there are plenty of tutorials on intenet to solve the problem, or if you have the resources, any tecnician can solve it.
