flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sigma 400 f5.6 APO Macro|
|price paid:||1500 USD (2nd hand)|
|comment:||This lens is great, even used with Minolta 1,4x|
On 6mp camera (KM 5D) focus is slow with converter on but still precise. It is a little soft wide open so I prefer to stop down a little, but things will get better with A700 or more.
I used it most of the time handheld and it is really not a problem: well, after some hours shooting your shoulder can be tired but when you see results you want to start again.
I love it (and I sold my Sigma 400mm)
I use it on A700 now, with both 1,4x and 2x, and it delivers a beter sharpness wide open.
I love it more!
