The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Lightness and compactness. Sharpness and contrast. Colors. Autofocus. Uniqueness of the focal (now of 135mm autofocus from "medium price" do not produce virtually any more). Price in the used.
Cons:I can't find it. Perhaps the excessive contrast for those who are fond of more "delicate" optics in the surrender.
Opinion:Optics in my opinion outstanding. Ratio size-weight-dimensions-image quality absolutely unattainable from all the competition of fixed or zoom covering said focal. The various bright 135 fixed of Nikon, Canon, Sony, Sigma etc, cost a bang, weigh like boulders and are bulky. Zooms that cover the focal or have lower brightness (I think of the various F4-5.6) or are, in comparison, huge and very heavy: I say from (happy) possessor of the excellent Tamron 70 200 2.8 that I use on Nikon, which has a good yield but that..... Good heavens.... it weighs like a boulder and to carry around is very uncomfortable! The yield already at full aperture is great: sharpness at the highest level (... and we talk about a lens that was not designed exactly 5 or 6 years ago!!!!), very contrabeen (for those who prefer a softer yield maybe this may not be a "pro"), bokeh Particularly beautiful, qualitatively not inferior to that which give the optics a portrait. Wanting to make a comparison, perhaps a bit ' risky but that makes a little ' the idea, the results that returns this optics are similar to those of the Sigma Art 60 2.8 which has M4 or Sony attack. Ecco....la focal length of the latter is shorter, but the rendition of colors/contrast/bokeh, in my opinion, is similar as "typology". On my Sony A58 the autofocus is very fast and responsive: while not having the ultrasonic motor, the results in terms of speed are worth noting, very close to those of motorized optics. On APS, used for portrait, already manages to "detach" very well the subject.... maybe a little lunghetto, but outside there are no problems. I guess FF's doing even better. It is located on figures ranging from 120-130 to 170-180 euros.... If in good condition, and you want to use it on your Sony, it's always worth buying it! Really...... you'il never regret it!
Pros:Sharpness also to TA, the focus speed, construction, weight, built-in hood, Filters 55mm, price
Cons:Focal difficult to manage on APS-C, better on FF
Opinion:Lens nothing short of excellent, really cheap (around a hundred Euros), and has an incredible sharpness already TA, used with the tubes becomes a discrete macro. On portraits provides a very soft blurry. Its construction is excellent: all metal. The weight is very low, and a feeling of incredible solidity. The great feature is then its built-in hood, convenient and easy to use! Monta filters 55, which are cheap, and allows for great creativity. Only problem turns out to be long in the internal and external short in on APS-C, while on Currency British FF can be an alternative to the STM 135 and the carlomagno (135mm f1.8)
