|TallPaul#4241 date: Oct-14-2008|
flare control: 3
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 70-200/2.8 G|
|price paid:||Ł130 (new)|
|positive:||Cheap lens with good range.|
Performs better than you think stopped down.
Not too heavy to carry around.
|negative:||Its a budget lens, so not great.|
Quality suffers wide open, which is a problem at the 300mm end.
Not designed for digital as far as I am aware.
|comment:||My version of this lens I have had for around 8 years, bought new to use with my film body at the time (2xi).|
This lens is a great deal for the price, especially with the current second hand prices. Its not comparable to the more expensive lens's, but for someone new to Alpha mount wanting a longer zoom than the kit lens this lens is a good buy.
The quality is not superb, but for the price its very good, and with film I have had many happy years of shooting before I was fortunate enough to upgrade to a G lens.
