I wish I could have great things to say here
on February 8, 2015
I wish I could have great things to say here, but I'm afraid you get what you pay for in this case. The lens is decent enough, but I see issues. I shot a couple of basketball games (indoor) and the resolution and speed are as expected. It took a few to get used to the focus indicator, and I found myself loosing shots because of taking my attention away.
The big issue is the chromatic apparitions when shooting against or near brighter lights. Sometime green, sometimes magenta... They are significant. Took some post processing to take that out. Would be nice if there were a Lightroom profile for this lens too. I searched around (using the other brand names this lens has too) and couldn't find a match.
It's just an ok lens, I should have saved for the Nikon 85mm.
