flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 18-55 and 18-70 kit lens, Minolta 24-105, Sigma 10-20, Sigma 70-300, Sigma 17-35, Sigma 50 Art, Sony FE 70-200 G f4.|
|positive:||Cheap, can be had for £30 in v-good condition.|
Weighs next to nothing and is very compact.
Smooth focus and zoom.
|negative:||Rotating front if using filters.|
Could be faster but then that means heavier.
|comment:||Loved this lens on my A580 as covered my most used ranges at the time. Now have A7R so it is a true 35-105 which again works great for me. Have to use manual focus as no LA-EA4 adapter but tend to be at f8 or more so no issues with focus peaking on A7R. Used in London for walk about lens and had some great shots. Sure there are way better lenses out there, but proce to performacnce ratio his is great.|
