flare control: 2
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||50mm macro from Minolta and Sigma|
|comment:||The plastic fantastic, Shoddy feel build quality with surprisingly good optics. I have the Soligor version. It is an excellent performer I use it on my a55, and bought it after going SLT, and my Sigma 50mm macro refusing to work on SLT.|
This is like a toy lens. Rattles, whirrs and feels flimsy and lightweight, but boy, will it blow you away on the unexpected great IQ.
Owners have no problem in forgiving the negatives when they actually see what this lens pulls out optically. Worth every penny- and some...
Sharp... yes, very
Colours... almost Minolta like
Price... no macro at this price gets close
it also makes a handy portrait lens if you need to pick out the details.
Try to pick it up with matching 1:1 adapter as these may be harder to get after the fact.
