|Metasynthese#11499 date: Nov-26-2013|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|price paid:||240€ extra for Kit|
|positive:||-Fast AF (especially for an E-Mount lens)|
-Low distortion for a kit-zoom
|negative:||-nothing for the price|
|comment:||It's much better than SEl18-55 and SEL16-50. |
It has comparably high contrast and very good colors. Sharpness is adequate/enough especially for a zoom but below good primes of course.
On 28mm extreme corners show slight distortion and slight CAs at wide apertures, but it's better than I expected and I guess not very field relevant. Subjectivly this lens seems to have best performance around 40-45 but also good performance at the short and the long end. As the hood does only work well for 28mm there can be sometimes slight flaring, especially on studio work (sample http://www.flickr.com/photos/54671350@N02/11077320553/), but overall it's controlled very well for a zoom (better than most other Zooms I know). It's a very good lens studio work.
Build is very light but a little huge. For a plastic lens it's made quite decent. Haptics are decent aswell - it makes a lot of fun to use it.
It's the best kit-zoom-lens I've seen so far.
