flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 18-135|
Minolta 50 f1.7
Minolta 28 f2.8
|price paid:||110 (used)|
Small and Lightweight
Loose focus ring
|comment:||Sharpness: Great, beats all the lenses I´ve ever had, from center to corners from f2.2, but from 1.8-2.0 is great too!|
Color: Not Minolta colors, but really good Sony colors.
Build: I don´t like the plastic mount. Everything in the lens is plastic, but body feels good, compact, not cheap plastic. In my opinion, focus ring is too loose, it feels like it could move when you walk, but has a good precision.
More: Low distortion, great bokeh for such a small focal lenght. Spherochromatism wide open (1.8-2.2) but great bokeh anyway.
Autofocus it´s fast an accurate, hunts a little bit wide open in low light situations, but from f2.0 it never fails. More focus noise than the 18-135. Very less noise than any Minolta I´ve ever tested.
Highly recommended lens, perfect for portraits, good for landscape, nice even for flowers since its has a reproduction of 1:4.
