|comment:||I got this lens today, and i am very exited to test this lens. My second G lens. |
When i hold the lens, i was so surprise that the lens is so big compare to mini beercan and Minolta 35-105. The weight is so significant different to those 2. My hand suffer after 30min of shooting. haha.
The lens was surprisingly AF fast in A700. It zoom ring is very smooth. When shooting on the A700, it give the stable balance feel. I would say superb mechanical engineering on the lens.
The build material for the lens is different to other minolta lens. it material used is really solid. Well engineered lens.
