Sony DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM A-mount lens review by cicaro
|cicaro#11234 date: Jul-3-2013|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 18-70/3.5-5.6(A350s kit zoom)|
Minolta 28-80 AF zoom macro, Baby Beercan
|price paid:||~350 USD(bundled)|
|positive:||Sharp as hell! Works like a charm on my A77. On the A350 on the other hand you wont get the whole advantage of this lens.|
|negative:||Buttons on lens takes down the quality feel from a perfect 5 to a 4. I wonder if they will last as long as I want to use this lens?|
Its supposed to have a quiet focus motor and yes it's not as noisy as the focus on the old beercan but its not that quite i thought. Just less noiser than usual.
|comment:||I saved up the extra money so I could afford to buy this lens bundled with an A77 when it was time to upgrade my camera system. I would say that it was well worth the extra 3000 SEK(around 350USD), the most expensive lens I ever bought.(I seldom buy new lenses cause I can't afford them). |
If I hadn't bought it i would regret it if I knewed what I missed.
