|comment:||This is the default lens on the camera. I agree with about all of the comments on the lens, both positive and negative, that have been posted previously. I won't rehash that ground again.|
As far as images the lens can capture, generally they are extremely good. In my opinion they are as good as any more recent lens and must have been phenomenal when it was manufactured. I've found limitations in the flare and minimum focus length though (OK, guess I will go into past comments).
My copy of the lens came to me used. It had seen some pretty good use before it got to me. With that in mind though, it shows very good workmanship and rugged components. Even showing some previous use it is a solid, smooth performer that above all gives great images.
