flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sony 55-200|
|positive:||Sharp lens with great color. great range from telephoto to wide angle.|
|negative:||Tends to be a tad on the contrast side. Zoom is tight to handle. Sticks.|
|comment:||This lens is bulky but solid. it also offers a great range and will be my main lens for everyday uses. It is quite sharp throughout and the color and contrast is great. The contrast is a bit high as some light areas almost too over exposed. The weight does not rally bother me as it is well balanced and feels rugged. Came with sturdy case also. Better color than the Sony 55-200 but is not a D lens for flash.|
After more use, I adjusted the camera so the contrast is much better.
Very pleasing results. The only irritation is that the lock button sticks occasionally to free up the zoom.
