Minimum focus distance
Hunts on a700
|comment:||Heavy, built like a tank, I used this lens a lot on 7D, and it gave very good results. On my a700, it hunts a bit too much and the focus is often not precise, so I sold it.|
The colors are great to me, but the most disappointing feature is the minimum focus distance, that is approximately 1,5 meters... definitely limiting the 135mm side too much.
The focus ring was a bit too loose, but maybe it was my copy. Still, I have to understand the meaning of a macro switch at 28mm... not very useful indeed.
