flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 200mm HS APO|
MInolta 100-400mm APO
|positive:||Extremely sharp wide opened|
ADI compatible which may be helpful when using with Sony/Sigma macro flashes.
Color/bokeh... and everything you want to check
|negative:||No focusing limit|
not fast auto focusing
|comment:||Extremely sharp at wide opened. The same WOW affect when I use 200mm APO HS. At f3.5, the bokeh of this lens is a little bt smoother than Min apo 200mm APO (due to the polygon shaped of highlight bokeh on Min 200 APO HS)|
Not fast focus when using it as a portrait lens. It's extremely sharp. I wish this lens has a focusing limit.
I do not want to pay more than $2500 for the Minolta APO 200 F4 Macro. grab this lens instead!
