27 June 2013
Excerpt: This compact telephoto lens is immensely popular amongst those looking for a compact, lightweight addition to their standard kit lens. It provides an angle of view equivalent to an 82.5-300mm lens used on a 35mm camera, costs peanuts to buy new and is available to fit Canon, Nikon and Sony DSLRs. Can such a low-cost lens deliver decent quality? We'll investigate in this review.
Pros: Great sharpness at 55mm, Low falloff, Lightweight, Compact, Very inexpensive
Cons: CA at 200m and maximum aperture, Needs stopping down for best results, Narrow, undamped manual focus ring.
