flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 80-200 Xi|
Minolta 100-300 Xi
|price paid:||€ 599 new|
|positive:||Overall sharpness on APS-C. Extreme quick focussing (with A700). Even faster with my A77|
|negative:||Quite heavy, but what can you expect...|
|comment:||The first time I used this lens on my A700 was on the beach during stormy weather with about 20 running dogs. What a positive suprise to see how quickly the HSM focussing reacts.|
It gives a nice, clear and bright view and sharp images. On 200mm slightly purple fringing in extreme lightconditions.
That's why I give it a 4 for color rating.
Use it with a 2x TC and you have a 140-400 / 5.6! Impressive combination on my A700. (Bought me a 135-400mm Sigma)
Still very enthusiast about this one even with my A77 and A900
