Tamron SP AF 24-135mm F3.5-5.6 AD Aspherical IF Macro A-mount lens review by der dickgg
|der dickgg#5789 date: Jul-30-2009|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 18-70, Sigma 24-60EX, Sigma 70-200EX, Minolta 28-80Xi, Minolta 35-200Xi and all my other lenses....|
|price paid:||100 € second hand|
|positive:||Good range, even on APS-C. (like the old 35-200 Xi lens on FF or film).|
Quick autofocus. Can be used on APS-C and FF (my future a800?). Solidly build
|negative:||Not as fast as the Sigma 24-135. Slightly creeping zoom.|
|comment:||This lens was bought because I could not resist to offer € 100,- on the internet. The guy who sold the lens accepted the offer. It's since then used as the walkaround lens on my 2nd body, the Sony a100.(nowadays the a700) I will only sell it if I can get a Sigma 24-135 for the same money... |
Update: has Sigma ever built an 24-135 with the same quality???
Update: Wowww... this lens still is very sharp on my new A77! (Forget the future FF 'cause I own an A77 now).
Update II: sold it because I now own a Sigma 24-135. (And, more important; maybe I do buy a FF once....).
