flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Tamron 28-200 XR|
|price paid:||9 GBP|
|positive:||Sharp across the range|
Great colour and contrast
Built like a tank
72 mm filters
|comment:||Outdoor use only - MFD makes indoor use nigh on impossible.|
My copy is badged Soligor C/D UCMS and has the Licensed by Minolta engraving. Cosmeticaally identical to the 60-300 except the filter size (both lenses being produced by Koboron).
Very good sharpness throughout once stopped by 2/3rds.
Slightly better than the Tamron but the Sony is incredible for its range.
This is a bargain lens and well worth getting whether on a budget or not.
