flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
CA ( but rarely )
|comment:||What can one add - it is just a very, very good lens especially for a zoom. Gave it 4.5 for sharpness as just can't give 5 for everything and it would not let me put 4.5 for distortion :). Do get get CA sometimes in extreme conditions but never had flare problems ( I think it depends on how you use the lens ).|
There is one thing however that it is NOT -
IT IS NOT A 70-210 BUT IT IS A 75-210.
I have checked this on the data on my 7 and had it checked on the EXIF ( ? ) of a 7D digithingy. The possible reason for this is that it's heritage comes from a previous MF lens produced during the Leica liason period but this can't be verified - it was the best idea a few of us could come up with so who knows.
