soft images, otherwise good lens

  • Summary: Depending on your criteria you will either love or hate this lens. First the negatives. This lens is soft at f/4 and improves little when closed. How soft is soft? Noticeably softer than the kit DAL 18-55 wide open even when resized to ~2MP (24" monitor).

Uneven performance

  • Summary: I'm using this lens with my K200D. The lens is relatively compact, versatile, has high build quality, but performance is uneven. You never know if it will focus fast or hunt a lot, with no apparent reason. Focus at 70mm is not fantastic, as reported previoudsly.

Leider nur Mittelmaß

  • Summary: Das Objektiv hat einen sehr praktischen Brennweitenbereich und eine hinreichend große Apertur von f/4. Auch ist es noch recht leicht und kompakt, die Konkurrenz ist hier schwerer.
