positive:Great colours. Sharp at F8.
negative:Zoom action is not as smooth as it should be. Softens as you move either side of F8. No better than cheaper Minolta 24-105.
comment:Full frame street lens that can give great results at F8 but disappoints elsewhere. Buy the older Minolta version and get the same results for less.
