flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||SONY DT1870SAL and the Tank,|
Minolta 35-70 Beercan classic
|positive:||Fast and light weight, adjust quickly to the ambient temperature, fantastic colors|
|negative:||Vulnerable, especially the AF mechanism, not so good for macro|
|comment:||I tested the Lens on my KM5D, KM7D and SONY A200.|
It seems the rebranded kitlens SONY DT1870SAL is simmilar to this lens in specs and performance, while the Kanoca Minolta is Vulnerable its more reliable than the SONY in my opinion.
I see more SONY's DT with broken AF, and never have seen the Konica Minolta having the same problem.
The Minolta 35-70/F4 wins @ macro stting compare to both lenses.
Its stayes in my Gear, and urned his place.
