|price paid:||300 Euro (ex-demo)|
Front lens cover
|comment:||A beautiful lens. I got it very cheap because of a dust partical inside the lens, which would be relative easy to remove, but I have no problem with it. |
Beautiful pictures are possible, but any hand-hold pictures are more or less impossible because of the weight.
The lens comes with a hard case and a nice little stand.
In the case there is a lot of space for accessories.
The front lens cover is a nice metal cover, but the connection with the lens is made with a felt rim
Tested my lens on the a700, and to my surprise... no hunting of the AF.
The lens works just like on the dynax7 and earlier camera´s
(If there´s enough light)
The first impression is that the lens performs better on the a700 in the sharpness rating compared to the 7D.
