|derekw#10785 date: Dec-15-2012|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 16-80|
|price paid:||90 GBP used|
|positive:||Very sharp throughout the range.|
Virtually no PF
Not a D lens
|comment:||This lens is so good that it holds its own with two of the best availabe lenses covering a similar range.|
Just a touch soft at 24 f3.5, it becoms sharp at f4. At all other focal lengths and apertures it is sharp and very sharp above f5.6.
If you dont need 16-24 save yourself some serious cash and look for one of these.
At similar focal lengths and apertures it at least matches the two lenses mentioned above. A sleeping giant!!
