Minolta AF 35mm F2 RS A-mount lens review by glina
|glina#8348 date: Dec-4-2010|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|positive:||Excellent sharpness. Reliable results in any conditions. Useful from F2.|
|negative:||None really. Bokeh could be better but this is not a portrait lens.|
|comment:||This is probably my best and most used lens. Never got a bad shot from it which could be attributed to lens weakness, and that should say a lot. Sharpness and color is better than 50/1.7. Contrast and flare control is better than 28-135, bokeh is far better than 24-85. Only the 17-35G compares well, but it's almost 2 stops slower.|
For APS-C users, the 35/1.8 is probably a better bet, but for FF there is no replacement, other than perhaps the 28/2. Highly recommended.
