Minolta AF 100mm F2.8 Macro D A-mount lens review by Roby72
|Roby72#9776 date: Jan-11-2012|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sigma 105 F2.8 EX DG Macro|
|price paid:||650 EUR (mint)|
|positive:||Focus hold button|
|negative:||Outdated building (styling)|
|comment:||I bought this lens from Japan, used but in excellent, like new conditions.|
SHARPNESS: Excellent, from F4 to F11 is the best. Take care if you use it to take portraits because you should have to reduce sharpness directly in camera (jpg) or in post production (raw).
COLOR: Typical for Minolta lenses, they are great and neutral, I prefer to Sigma 105.
BUILD: Despite of a very well built lens I think that compared to recent production from Canikon and Sigma this lens is a little outdated.
But if you don't care about SSM (macro lenses are used 99% MF), internal focusing, no weather sealing, etc...you have a lens with excellent glasses and that's what I care!
DISTORSION AND FLARE: are well controlled and no need to mention.
