|maraten#8716 date: Feb-28-2011|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 18-55|
|price paid:||70 (used)|
|positive:||-Massive, feels unbreakable|
-Zoom and aperture range
-Good use next to kit lens
-Macro mode (1:2)
|negative:||-Hunting AF in bad light|
-Weak AF gear (stripped mine)
|comment:||Great lens, feels strong and well build, to0 bad it isn't. Stripped my AF gear on Sony A230 body after just 2 months!|
So only manuel focus for me now.
Leaving that aside it's a great lens, sharp all over the zoom and aperture range, in good light fast AF, OK colors (Sigma colors ye) and nice zoom range.
Only in macro mode images tend to get a bit soft.
Bokeh champion in my line-up!
