    Strengths:    Overall high quality lens

    Weaknesses:    Minimun focal distance to long.
    Filter size is not the same like the other AF zoom lens 105-210 regardless what the company market say about that, it is not true.

    Bottom Line:   
    This lens is just perfect to go outdoors.I use it to travel and shot african cultures and is very useful for that purpose. I have used before a nikon 35 mm system but now and together with the Mamiya AF 645 is a very light and high quality equipment. I have also the 105-210 mm zomm but is very heavy to carry on.

    Strengths:    Amazing focal length and great for indoors and outdoors people photography.
    Good for landscapes or architectural as well, max aperture is f32, good DOF.

    Weaknesses:    quite a large minimal focus range, 1.5m that doesnt make it that useful if you want to do some interesting close up portraits.

    Bottom Line:   
    Having hired a 645AFD and this lens i was amazed at its handling abilities, zoom is fast and quiet for most subjects although it does search a bit when you are shooting against backlit subjects but thats to be expected. It really is a great lens. IR marking on the barrel as well if your that way inclined. Easy switching from AF/MF by moving the focus barrel back and forward on the lens and a lot handier than some lenses i have used.This camera was hired to prepare me for the medium format stuff i would be using in a wedding soon and it seems ideally suited to that kind of task.
