Minolta AF 100mm F2 A-mount lens review by RobY
|RobY#1380 date: Nov-5-2006|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||KM 100 2.8 Macro D|
100-300 APO D
|negative:||Being picky, narrow MF ring, minimum focus distance, and speed of focusing compared to SSM lens.|
|comment:||Only had it for two weeks but I love it. This is the lens I didn't want to buy, it was my third purchase in one week! But with both caps, hood and boxed with full documentation I had to have it!|
Without doubt it is the sharpest lens I have ever used and retains detail even when enlarged enough to pixalate; on a Film or FF body it would be amazing - can't wait.
As a portrait lens it is just fabulous, almost TOO sharp. Haven't noticed the AF hunting - unlike the macro so I guess its fine, it's excellent on the A700 and awesome on the A900!
If you are lucky enough to find one BUY IT, you know you want to!
