|andyken#9868 date: Jan-31-2012|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|compared to:||18-55mm SAM|
|price paid:||50 GBP|
|positive:||Very sharp stopped down.|
Small & light.
|negative:||Soft at wide apertures.|
35mm not wide enough for APS-C.
|comment:||I bought this on Ebay. Photo was cunningly unclear and listing said it was the older 'Beercan' generation lens. I was initially disappointed when I found I had bought the 'N' version, but actually its quite a good lens and at f8 can produce superbly sharp photos, but rather soft at wide apertures and at zoom extremes.|
Sold it when I bought my Sony 16-105mm, which is much better suited as a walk-around lens for APS-C and much better at wide apertures.
