flare control: 3
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|compared to:||Tamron 90, Sigma 105, Sony/Minolta 100|
|positive:||Good overall sharpness and geometry, matched achromat to 1:1 macro added|
|comment:||I used to have this lens branded as Soligor. Really good optics, great sharpness, contrast is rather low, helping from overburning lights (you can add contrast in post-processing easily if you like).|
This lens is low priced alternative to more expensive 1:1 macros. It may look cheap, autofocus works slow, but is sharp as a knife from edge to edge. Buy it for 100EUR and you'll be lucky. Watch out - there should be dedicated 1:1 macro achromat attached.
