|Murman#44502 date: Apr-24-2020|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Min. 28-135mm f4-4.5|
Min. 28-105mm f3.5-4.5
|price paid:||$644 US New|
|positive:||Sharp edge to edge. Great depth of field. Colors are very well saturated but are "natural".|
Focus is quick and silent.
|negative:||Zoom is opposite of the usual. Twist left to zoom out. Takes getting used to.|
Just a tad heavy but it balances well.
|comment:||Sigma offered this lens to me at a discount because they could not repair a lens that I had sent in for repair. I wasn't planning to purchase a new lens but couldn't refuse the price. I have no regrets.|
On a full frame camera (a99) it is almost the perfect walk around lens.
Shot my nieces' wedding with it. Out of 200+ shots, I missed focus on one and that was my fault, not the lens.
Normally, I would not rate a zoom at 5 for sharpness but this one is in a different class.
