flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||24-70 2.8 ZA|
28-70 2.8 G
|price paid:||500 CHF (used)|
|positive:||Fast and silent AF, lovely colors, great IQ, Cheap!!!|
|negative:||No focus hold, focusing-ring-rubber issues!|
|comment:||Sharper than the Minolta|
A bit less micro contrast and color appealing than the Zeiss.
A great "cheap" lens that offers "very similar" outcome compared the triple priced zeiss.
From my point of view here is an quick evaluation for the 3 mentioned lenses:
1- Minolta G has warmer colors and the most appealing bokeh though it is slower and noisier
2- Sigma version is faster, silent and sharper with nice overall colors
3- Zeiss is the sharpest with the highest micro contrast and more realistic colors. fast and great IQ. the only drop back is the price!
