ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Minolta 75-300mm Big Beercan
Sony 18-135mm
price paid:75 USD (used)
positive:Amazing picture, bokeh is very sweet, and it gives me 2.8 until 135mm! For me it's a very good lens for shooting portraits
negative:Yea, flare control isn't so good, but hood helps a lot. The other problem is the zoom creep. When I wear a camera on my neck, lens is zooming to the 200mm every time
comment:Good alternative to Beercan
