compared to:sal 16-105
Tam 60 macro
price paid:180USD
Good image quality
comment:Best value price to performance lens on the market.
Almost as sharp as the Tamron, which I consider to be a 5, sharper than the zooms. Good colour fast and fun to use. Unlikely to bounce well but my 16-105 stopped working without a knock!
