|lagaffe#614 date: Mar-22-2006|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I have experience with this lens|
|compared to:||28-80mm D f3.5-5.6|
- Nice color rendition.
- Good, useful range: 27-105mm
|negative:||- Distortion at both ends.|
- Rather slow.
- No DOF scale.
- Laughable hood.
|comment:||Even though it is slow, not that sharp and has noticeable distortion at both ends, I still like it as it is an ideal "walk-around" lens with it's equivalent 27-105mm range. This is one lens to take out when you are restricted in terms of luggage. It will cover most street and landscape photography requirements. They are pretty cheap now on Ebay (around 100$) and are a good deal at this price.|
