Minolta AF 50mm F2.8 Macro RS A-mount lens review by ISO3200
|ISO3200#990 date: Jul-7-2006|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I have experience with this lens|
|compared to:||50/3.5 Macro|
60/2.8-5 Macro Nikkor
|positive:||Sharp, versatile, nice ring, focus limiter.|
|negative:||You have to be on top of your subject to get 1:1|
|comment:||I'm surprised this lens hasn't been reviewed, it's just as good as the 100/2.8 RS, just of a different focal length; some might say a more general and versatile focal length.|
I'd claim this to be one of the most usefeul lenses money can buy, especially as you don't need much money to buy it. If you treat it as a 50mm that can go down to 1:1 then you're all set for a day of general photography; especially if you use the perfectly usable focus-limiter to stop it searching.
Sharpness, as in all the Minolta macros, is second to none.
