Unbeatable in Portraits Outdoor
Slow AF in low contrast or specially hard conditions
|comment:||I own this lens since 1985, and it has been a hard-worker, from my begginings in photography, and until date it always worked well, even with some scratches in the front glass (A fall from my father hands at Iguazú Falls)|
It works normally quite well but from time to time it makes historic pictures, specially in portraits (maybe light conditions, or personal inspiration, don't know) that no other lens could beat.
I use it also for nature pictures and macro, with good results.
My collection best, undoubtedly.
