flare control: 3
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|compared to:||70-210 F/3.5 - F/4.5|
|price paid:||85 euro|
|positive:||Sharp stopped down.|
Really prone to flare.
|comment:||Another classic from Minolta. Very sexy looking but weighing half a ton. Sharpness is ok wide open but only gets real good above F/8 which is too heigh for me. With this kind of zoom range the shutter times will be unusable. IQ is very good with a nice smooth bokeh making the subjects really pop out.|
In stead of this gem you might also consider the 75-300 'new' which IQ is as good and is a lot easier to handle.
