Is Anyone using a Leica 28-90 2.8-4.5 on their Epic ? I'm looking for a good mechanics full frame zoom that can play well in EF mount. A bit longer range than 50mm at the long end. Other options might be the canon 24-70's, 24-105 etc. I have a Contax 28-85 and it's not rocking my world and I'll probably stick it on ebay in the next few.
If you're using it can you tell me about how much it trombones when zoomed or focused ?
characterize the light loss as you get towards tele?
How even is the field illumination ?
Generally nice for hand held ? do you prefer barrel or follow focus focusing ?
how are you filtering ?
Contrast / Color / Resolution / CA up to snuff ?
Is it Parfocal ? Pretty much or dead on ?
Anything else ?
I checked out a leica 70-180 during salt 2 and was quite impressed - is it on a par with one of those ?
