|yellowballoon#2650 date: Aug-23-2007|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||35-70 f4, 28-80 f4-5.6 xi zoom|
|positive:||A ledgendary lens|
Great for collectors
Awsome price for fixed apature
Built like a tank
|negative:||Autofocus is a little to slow, although it was one of the first ever autofocus lenses.|
Lens hood restricts focus when back-mounted.
|comment:||I would not part my beercan for the world. It is my pride and joy, (that is aswell as my 9000!) It performs so well for its age and is a genuine classic. Mention the word "beercan" and instantly any camera-adict will know what your talking about.|
For 21 years this lens has served me well and even when I dropped it off a tripod onto tarmac it was fine! (a little nick out of the filter thread said by-by to the hood though).
If you want a brilliant telephoto zoom for a low-price, this is the best! yb
