Minolta AF DT 18-70mm F3.5-5.6 D A-mount lens review by RedDrake
|RedDrake#8557 date: Jan-24-2011|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
+ good range
+ sharp stopped down
- distortion is heavy
- unable to provide enough resolution for newer sensors
|comment:||Well, it's a good companion for the KM5D or 7D, but it lacks resolution to give good images on cameras with 12MP and more.|
However if you make small prints and/or resize your digital images to about 3-4MP, then it's practically ideal.
The only really bad thing is the distortion, which is noticeable on both ends.
I also haven't experienced any flare with this lens, even though I've lost the hood (which is extremely small anyway).
