flare control: 1
|ownership:||I own this lens|
I'd have preferred 24mm instead of 28mm.
|comment:||A marvelous little lens that works really well on even modern FF cameras. I use it a a good bit on my A99.|
It's a good performer during noon on a sunny day! No washed out tones/colors. I totally like this lens for that.
What I really don't like is the flare. It's truly horrible. Some of the worst I've seen of any lens. It doesn't come with an inbuilt hood and 3rd party hoods aren't that great, either. A rubber collapsible hood might be useful given the wide zoom range.
There's some amount of CA/fringing wide open and close to wide open but it's a known issue for lenses from that era.
Don't point it directly at the sun in the frame. You will regret it.
