flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||85mm F1.4, 70-210 Beercan|
|positive:||Build, working distance, sharpness, Minolta colors|
|comment:||This is, by far, the sharpest lens I own. The Minolta 85mm F1.4 comes very close from F4, but the 100 macro is simply sharp everywhere, and its flat field of focus keeps more of your subject in focus when wide open.|
I have no complaints at all about this lens, it is an absolute delight on my A77, with adequate focus speed (it is a macro, after all), excellent build and a size and weight that really compliments the A77 and makes for an outstanding general use, as well as macro lens.
As much as I love my 85mm F1.4, if I could only keep one prime lens (my Sony 16-50MM would be my one and only lens), it would be the 100 macro.
