Sony Carl Zeiss 135mm F1.8 ZA Sonnar T* A-mount lens review by ABramley
|ABramley#2781 date: Sep-26-2007|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|price paid:||Ł653 (new)|
|positive:||Solid build (when nothing's broken...)|
Very, very Sharp
Heavy, but not stupidly so - feels good
Very decent AF with a beasty body
Very pleasing bokkeh
|negative:||AF could still be improved for the price (SSM!)|
Front section can work loose!!!
|comment:||Incredible piece of kit, a lot of fun to use and it seems to give spectacular results. Highly reccomended.|
(Edit) After approx 6 months of use the build has had to go down to a 4. Although the thing's solid as a rock when screwed together, there's been numerous reports of the front section working loose - and now mine's done the same. Not best impressed!
Now been given a workout on a900 - still incredibly sharp and the AF speed has jumped up from the 7D and Dynax 7. An SSM edition would still make me put it on ebay though!
