Minolta AF 24-105mm F3.5-4.5 D A-mount lens review by richard_b
|richard_b#377 date: Jan-3-2006|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||CZ 16-80, Minolta 70-210 f4|
|price paid:||349 USD (new)|
|positive:||Good mid-range zoom|
Very sharp in all the shots I have taken
|negative:||Focus ocasionally hunts when shooting in very low light, otherwise the focus is pretty good. |
Seen ocasional flare on direct into the sun shots and some CA wide open.
Not super fast, but I typically stop down to f8 or lower to increase DOF
|comment:||This lens works really well for me. The range covers most of the shooting situations that I am interested in - mostly landscapes and cityscapes. |
Have some samples posted at 24-105 sample gallery.
Also ran a series of test shots (center and edge) at f4, f8, f16 and at 24mm, 50mm and 105mm at 24-105 test gallery.
