|comment:||This lense is really good for macro.|
I used it mainly for portraiture in the past but now I am using a Sony firstname.lastname@example.org. The 50mm macro is sharpest but the AF is too slow to catch my kids.
I put also only 4 for the build but frankly speaking, even if it has more plastic than the old version, the build is very good.
I compared the old and the RS version. Optically, I did not detect any difference !
I also compared both macro 50mmf3.5 and 50mmf2.8. the f3.5 is maybe slightly better à f3.5 but same when you step down.
