|Alphaville#11029 date: Apr-10-2013|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Tamron 4-5.6/28-105|
Sony SAL 2.8/28
|price paid:||15 Euro (incl. cam.)|
|positive:||light-weight, cheap, small, compact, performs well|
|negative:||does not seem very sturdy|
|comment:||I got this lens attached to a somewhat broken Dyanx 5 for 9 Euro plus delivery fee from Ebay from a gentleman who sold this as broken, as the camera was broken. I could not find any of the problems people usually criticize it for as it just works fine. I am about to replace it with a high(er) speed lens though. Yes, it feels damn cheap, but... it was definitely cheap for me. |
Might have some distortions at 28mm but I did not really compare it with another lens, but it seems my Sony 2.8/28 has less.
I like it not adding extra weight to my A850.
