|firtha#7697 date: Jul-17-2010|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sigma 75-300 APO|
Minolta 70-210 Beercan
|price paid:||200 USD (used)|
|negative:||Very soft above 200 mm|
|comment:||Can't elaborate much on the other reviews for positves and negatives, just want to get my numbers into the overall average.|
This lens is sharper AT OR BELOW 200 mm than the Sigma and Beercan. My particular copy is VERY soft above 200 mm, and worst at f8, better at f22 or f5.6 (kind of a surprise). The sigma would be a better lens to use above 200 mm, and this lens below 200mm.
Having said that, the images are still usable above 200, just don't try to crop them...
