Sony DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM A-mount lens review by vincentius
|vincentius#9565 date: Nov-5-2011|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||16-105 DT|
|price paid:||600 USD (kit)|
|comment:||Definitely not a small or light lens, but it balances with the A77. Sharpness is great, and rarely back/front focus. With micro AF adjustment it'd be even better.|
The 16-105 seems really light after holding this for a while.
I love the silent AF and the range. You will feel limited by the range at first, but this is the range I shoot at 70% of the time (and the 30% is covered by my 55-200 or 70-200) (On APS-C, that is)
No doubt the designers are serious about the build. Very solid.
If you look for an affordable high quality lens, this lens will be a good start. Still a way to compare with the 24-70CZ, but at the price, you get what you pay for.
Still first days using the lens, so will update review if there are any changes
