Lovely Minolta colours
Value for money.
|comment:||Judging from the reviews below, there appears to be some average samples of this lens. I must have been lucky as all my samples have been excellent. Sharper than the Beercan (70-210) but the bokeh , although good, is not quite as good.|
As sharp as the Sony and Big Beercan, with better colour rendition than the Sony. Sold the Sony and Beercan.
Good weight to carry around.
Flare - NB Scored 5 with hood fitted. It really is necessary with this lens.
Slight zoom creep with lens pointed downwards.
The IQ produced complements my 35-105 (original) very well.
