|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Tokina - AT-X PRO AF 80-200 F2.8|
|price paid:||698,90 Euro (new)|
+ Build quality
+ Silent focus
+ f/2.8 from 70 to 200
+ Cheaper than Sony 70-200 f/2.8
|negative:||- color fringing in some situations|
|comment:||- HSM is quiet, this is very nice. Though I am not really sure if it focuses faster than the Tokina. I have to test them side by side. |
- Focusdistance is way better than the Tokina.
- Build quality is pretty good, except the hood. This one is plastic, Tokina is metal.
- Sharpness seems to be very good, but not as good as a prime or a Zeiss of course.
- Colorfringing in some situations
- Added a fringing-example to the Sample-Pictures section.
