|comment:||Bought second hand from a friend, I'm very impressed with the example I have. |
It was completely cleaned before I bought it.(refurbished)
The image quality and sharpness is amazing.
This lens is very nicely built and the optics are first rate.
I liked how it felt and the build of it was pretty solid .
The weight and portable size make it a great travel lens.
Great value and utility, and not just for macro work.
On APS-C sensors it becomes a small tele (75mm equivalent).
This is by far the sharpest lens I've used, it's noticeably sharper than the 50mm 1.7 .
At 2.8 1:1 and no flash, DOF is razor thin, but what's in focus will be razor sharp.
Sharpness is excellent in all F-stops, colours are what you except from a minolta lens, just deep and lovely .
It's quality is unmatched, a fantastic lens, this lens is sharp, sharp, very sharp.
Thit I told that I adore this lens .
If you can buy a good copy,
just get one!!! Prices rising quickly .
