Sigma 55-200mm F4-5.6 DC A-mount lens review by Pirate
|Pirate#3049 date: Dec-7-2007|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 18-70mm Macro|
Sigma 70-300mm APO DG Macro
Minolta AF 50mm f/1.7
|price paid:||£29.00 (New)|
|negative:||Rotoating Zoom (makes using CPL filter awkward)|
|comment:||I wanted a general walkabout lens for my A100. Read about this budget zoom lens and found a new example on eBay. After testing it, I found it to be a really decent little performer in all departments. Not exceptional, though competent.|
No real major bad points. Images are clean. As with the 70-300mm Sigma, the AF can 'hunt' a little at times. The zoom is fast enough and the Bokeh is also nice. Colours can be a little 'contrasty', but adjustable in pp.
I like it . . surprisingly . . and for the money paid (a bargain), fits my requirements perfectly.
Maybe a little hidden gem!
