Minolta AF 100mm F2.8 Macro D A-mount lens review by mrwizard93
|mrwizard93#1689 date: Jan-22-2007|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I have experience with this lens|
|compared to:||- none that I have - or can afford after this one|
- Circular aperture
- Focus limiter
- Did I mention sharpness and bokeh
|negative:||- AF Slow as molasses|
- Wish the build felt a little sturdier - not so much plastic
|comment:||Got this for a song. Beautiful bokeh - nice and creamy. Macro is really nice. The pictures that come from it are winners in my collection. You can see why this is one of the top Minolta lenses. |
Although it is hard to use with children and animals because they don't stop moving for a second and the AF loves to hunt - and hunt - and hunt - even with the focus limiter.
But I love this lens. It just sucks that the 1.4 magnification on the digital makes it awkward to use indoors sometimes.
