flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|positive:||Wide focal range on FF|
|negative:||Wide end max aperture 4.5|
|comment:||Pretty useful lens for outdoors and surprisingly good with bounce flash indoors. Color is great, I feel that this is a very underrated lens. |
The zoom is awkward and manual focusing is difficult, but I rarely MF in good light anyway.
Overall this lens is more useful to me than the 28-135 because of the MFD dilemma.
Videos shot with this lens on a99 are generally great quality at F4.5-5.6.
Overall I'd say this lens is my best value purchase to date.
