flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||50/1.7, 35/2, KM28-75/2.8, tokina 28-70/2.6-2.8|
|negative:||2/3 stops darker than primes in this range,|
|comment:||On 7D super sharp wide open 28..50, very sharp 50..70. |
Sharper than 50/1.7 (at f2.8) especially in the corners.
Color saturation is outstanding!
Only problem is this lenses are about 2/3 stops darker than others primes I have in this range. Probably because it is more complex construction - 16 elements vs 6 elements in 50/1.7, so it's like having 28-70/f3.5.
Anyway I'm keeping 35/2, and selling 50/1.7.
Still I love this lenses and can't wait to try on FF...
