|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||100-400 APO|
|positive:||Lightweight, very easy to zoom with Xi motorisation.|
Very sharp at F8.
|negative:||Purple fringe with sunny pictures. Flare too.|
|comment:||It's a very ligthtweiht zoom with an excellent ring mecanism. It's also possible to adjust focusing with the ring on the fly.|
It reach's is best resolution at F8 and it's as good as the 100-400 APO at F11 ! At F5.6, it is also sharper than then 100-300 APO.
It realise a very good job, sometimes better than bigger zooms.
The main problem remain's purple fringes.
