flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||DT 16-80 ZA|
24mm F2.0 ZA
|positive:||- awesome sharpness starting wide open|
- small lens
- even though plastic, it feels solid
- accurate manual focusing very easy
|negative:||- extends when focusing (i guess thats normal for a macro lens)|
|comment:||this lens is amazingly sharp. Compared it in my own tests to both the 16-80mm and 24-85mm @ 50mm, the macro lens beats them by far both wide open. At the f8 the 16-80mm is almost as good (center sharpness same) corners lack just a tiny little bit on the 16-80mm.|
The focusing ring on the macro lens allows for very accurate manual focusing, compared to the zoom lenses.
great lens for the price!
