Minolta AF 80-200mm F2.8 APO A-mount lens review by Ophtho
|Ophtho#9384 date: Sep-3-2011|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|positive:||The results. You point. You shoot. And you end up warm, personal pictures everyone will love.|
|negative:||It's a schlepp.|
MFD too long.
|comment:||Sharpness is not as tack on as my 100 Macro. Still i gave it a score of 5 since it has 5/5 sharpness for what you should use it for - people photography. |
Indoors or outdoors, low or bright light, on APS-C this one gets you as close to your subject as you desire and renders very flattering pictures.
I can't compare it to the white model since I haven't used one. On a black camera it definetly looks better. AF is reasonably fast with my a55; howeser you can hear them wheels a turning and it's a real battery drainer.
Filming handheld with stabilisation and autofocus on will overheat your sensor in minutes :)
