flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 50mm f/2.8 macro|
|price paid:||374USD new|
|positive:||small and light|
|comment:||This lens turned out to be a big disappointment. Right out of the box it had a terrible back focus issue; I had to set micro-focus adjust to the max of -20.|
Worse, though, it's just not as sharp as my work horse Minolta 50mm macro over f/2.8-f/5.6. At f/8 and above the two lenses are identical, but that's not why I bought an f/1.4 lens.
If there is any good news with the Sony lens, it's the fact that I don't see much performance difference from f/1.4 to f/2.8.
