flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony SEL1810, Tamron 11-18, Tamron 10-24, Voigtlander Super Wide Heliar 15 mk3, Sigma 12-24 DG.|
|positive:||Beautifully built. One fingertip manual focus when you want to use it that way. Ultra fast AF. This latest copy I have fount is ultra sharp for a super wide.|
|negative:||There was obviously some production variance as mu current copy is the sharpest that I have come across buy quite a margin. |
Super shiny finish looks naff.
|comment:||If you have a full frame Sony you should own this lens. It works on E-mount with the LA-EA4 brilliantly. As a manual focus lens it is a delight ( one finger focus ) with the LA-EA3 and it's brilliant on the A-mount cameras. Very fast focus, manual or auto. Or set to f8 and don't focus at all. It's all good. Great colours and very sharp for a super wide angle. Generally makes great looking images.|
WATCH OUT. Some are not as sharp as others.
