I hope you are having a nice weekend. Just came back home and made a short roundup of the very latest Alpha lens tests. Let’s start with a bit unexpected and positively surprising review: Carl Garrard (Click here) tested the Konica Minolta 100-300mm APO D f4.5-5.6 Lens:”The coatings on this lens and the APO elements produce some of the finest image quality I’ve seen from any DSLR lens in quite some time. My advice is to scoop up an APO D 100-300mm before they are gone.”
Great to see how good the Minolta lens on modern camera works. But they are really difficult to find. There are just few of them on eBay (Click here).
And here are two more reviews of more “Modern” lenses:
Photographyblog (Click here) reviewed the 50mm f/1.8 lens: “The Sony DT 50mm F1.8 SAM is a worthwhile addition to your camera bag given its budget price tag – if only it was full-frame compatible too…”
Photographyblog (Click here) also tested the 16-50mm lens: “Perhaps the only fly in the ointment is an apparent lack of sharpness at F2.8 that runs throughout the zoom range – you really need to stop down to F4 to achieve an acceptable level of sharpness. Despite this flaw, we can still highly recommend the Sony DT 16-50mm”
