|keith_h#46901 date: Nov-18-2022|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||28-70 G|
80-200 2.8 HS G
|price paid:||$200 usd|
|positive:||Image quality, ff range.|
|negative:||It's heavy, no question.|
|comment:||It takes the most beautiful images and has a range of focal lengths making it a useful walkaround lens. But its heavy and there's the tradeoff. |
My copy suffers terribly from CA in certain conditions but this is easily managed with software. I've marked distortion 3 for this reason.
It sort of sits in the beercan category for me, capable for sure but not compelling. Any of the other lenses mentioned would be a better pick in many situations. But when you can take only one lens for a photowalk, then this is the one.
Definitely worth having a good copy on hand.
