Bad copy... but costly RETURN PROCESS

  • Excerpt: The one star is for the lens but also for Adorama's RETURN PROCESS. Sure, you have 30 days to return but there's no free return shipping and no prepaid label. You have to download a form to fill out like 20 years ago... come on, take a look at the competition - it's 2014!!.
  • Pros: Great When A Good Copy
  • Cons: Expensive, Loud, Poor quality control, Slow Focus

  • Summary: A fine looking lens, and lightweight, but the goods really stop there. I did extensive testing on this lens, and I found it to be very soft from 1.8-5.6, and from 16-22, EVEN when focussing at infinity. (Worse close up, of course.
  • Pros: * Light, * Well damped focussing, * Compact, * Good flare resistance
  • Cons: * Very poor optics!!!!, * Awful out of focus highlights!!!, * Easy to lose the lens cap, * Expensive
