Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX APO IF A-mount lens review by Maggy
|Maggy#6852 date: Feb-2-2010|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
Minolta 500mm AF reflex
|price paid:||€ 400 inc B+W KR1.5|
Fast MF/AF switch
Easy rotate from landscape to portrait on tripod
Would probably survive abuse as hammer
Stays relatively compact from 70 to 200, same length in all zoom settings
F2.8! Do I need to explain?
Doesn't creep focus or zoom when held vertical, not the tiniest bit
Magnificent glass quality
Very safe bag
|negative:||The bag is just a bit too narrow, it takes me 8 to 9 seconds to pull the lens out.|
It's far from light weight, but what can you expect from F2.8?
|comment:||I thought the beercan was good.... This is WAY better.|
And the donut bokeh from the 500mm reflex drove me crazy. This is a dream bokeh.
I'm not going to compare with KM/Sony lenses that I can't afford and I can live with it that this lens is not HSM.
BTW, the picture in this article is not this exact lens, the picture reads HSM where this lens has the M/AF print.
