|hunnibunni#11976 date: Sep-9-2014|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||I have no other lens to compare this to. I can say I will never use the macro switch on my Minolta 35-105 ever again though.|
|price paid:||220 GBP|
Built in the days when things were made to last.
|comment:||This lens is just stunning. I rarely use digital now and this has almost become my "go to" lens with film for anything from bugs to landscapes lol. Mostly in manual focus but even when I use autofocus it does a good job of keeping up with my dyanx 600si in continuous focus mode.|
Friends have asked for more enlargements of my photos with this lens than any other. Taken me a while to get nice bokeh with close up ish shots but gosh, when it's right the effect can look just like a painting.
If you like macro (or any other kinda stuff really) and see one of these for sale, don't think about it just buy it. This is the one lens I have that I just wouldn't want to live without.
