Pros:Incredible focal excursion, discreetly good sharpness even at all focal lengths. All-round optics to carry everywhere and for this weighs little and is not very cumbersome. Precise and quick enough even with a light scarce light. The construction looks solid. It replaces on holiday and street photography an immense bag full of optics
Cons:Those who expect typical Zeiss performance from this lens can be disappointed: the advantage of the great excursion sometimes spends with distortion at the focal lengths and sharpness to the edges that are not to be screamed although this optics can spin out good quality images. Sometimes with really low lightness it loses time to look for the right fire.
Opinion:During a trip to Ireland, to be light, I only took the minute zoom kit of the Alfa 450 and in that breeze I felt a lot of lack of a long canvas. At home I immediately bought this optic that always followed me on my travels, including a half-year stay in Brazil. Well, on this occasion I made a great service, using it for landscapes and portraits of local people where the focal length of 200 - 250 mm allowed me to resume them without being noticed. I used it often in the street photo where I enjoyed its speed and precision of focus: having to photograph interesting characters, I first selected the focal point and then pointed the optic and immediately shot with the optics already focused on Fractions of second. I find it great for portraits where the focal length of 180 mm up offers a beautiful blurry background effect. The best sharpness at all focal points is obtained by closing the aperture af / 8 until af / 11. I recommend it to those who want to travel lightly: do not be afraid of the immense focal distance, the defectYou can cure it in post production .. Finally, focusing nearby subjects, may well fit for a nearly macro.
