Je suis l’heureux possesseur de ce magnifique objectif.
Après avoir lu beaucoup de pseudo tests et avis orientés à propos de ce caillou, j’ai décidé de me porter acquéreur de cet objectif pour mon plus grand bonheur.
De beaux clichés avec mon D850 et également avec mon Df.
À recommander sans modération.
Merci Nasim pour cette critique objective de cet excellent objectif.
