I’ll look for more info and update as I find it!
Update: I’ve looked up the focusing specs which are obviously really important for food photography, and it seems that is has what I am looking for – ie fairly close up capability at the longer lens lengths. 30 cm at the telefocus end of the lens is fine! It won’t have maximum aperture when the lens is extended but it still should have a comparatively short depth of field and as everything is controllable there’s more chance of getting what you want. It also shoots Raw for maximum control.
