  • Excerpt: Благо достался мне он по халяве, иначе рвал бы волосы на голове!!! Сравнивать сей девайс есть с чем. В арсенале у меня тушка 60D, 18-135, 24/2.8, 50/1.8. Сравнивать с фиксами не вижу смысла, а вот китовому 18-135 при одинаковых фокусных и том же объекте съемки он значительно уступает в резкости...
  • Pros: Компактность. На этом все!!!!
  • Cons: Отсутствует резкость. Возможно тока мой экземпляр этим страдает.
