positive:24mm at the begining, f.3.5, lighty
negative:Not sharp enough for me.
comment:Wide angle of view. I used it for daily taking pictures and indoor photography. Much better and sharper was MAF 28-105
I sold due to a bit short for me range it and changed for MAF 28-135 4.0-4,5 As I do more reportage pictures, where longer range is important.
