|W&7D#2727 date: Sep-14-2007|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 16mm, 20mm, 85mmG, 135mmSTF, 17-35mmG, 28-105mm, 28-70mmG, 70-200mmG, macro1-3x, 200mmAPO-G |
|price paid:||850 Euros(2nd hand)|
|positive:||Crisp photos. Rich & slightly warm colours. Imho a subtle but brilliant tool. F1.4. Tack sharp, no distortion or chrom atic aberration |
seen by me. Very sturdy 'G' build, but 'relatively' light.Circular aperture.
|negative:||Ehhh, expensive. As I also use the 17-35mm, I really had to think trice before I bought this gem. But hey, you only live once. With the 1.5 factor it becomes a 'standard' lens. (52mm, but results far above standard!, :-))|
|comment:||While reading thru other members reviews I found it hard to find superlatives for reviewing this lens. We all share the feeling and opinion that this is a GREAT lens.|
On the 7D I programmed the focus hold button for dof check.
