Minolta AF 20mm F2.8 A-mount lens review by Mr_Canuck
|Mr_Canuck#7148 date: Mar-24-2010|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sigma 10-20 (apsc)|
72mm filter size
|comment:||This is a really great lens. Wide open, the corners and edges can be a bit soft and the bokeh can be onion-like. But this is minor. There is (obviously) distortion but that goes with the territory. It's a sharp lens and quite flare-resistant and CA-resistant. Colour is very nice. Focusses fast and quite quietly. 72mm filter size is practical (nice complement to the 28-135 out in the field). Solid build.|
It's a great alternative to a large and heavy (and expensive) ultra-wide zoom. You can easily throw it in your bag. I also find the shooting experience with a wide prime a simpler process. I more easily foresee how a scene will look. Recommended for the a850/900.
