compared to:28mm f2, 85mm f1.4G, 100mm f2.8 macro
price paid:560 USD
Great Minolta color
negative:Rare.. very difficult to find one
comment:This should be one of the sharpest (even at f2.0 wide open) minolta lens around.. with great minolta color + bokeh.
I do not need to do any color adjustment on photos captured with this lens. It's one of the rare and great lens from Minolta. Do not hesitate to get it if you can find one.
Nowadays, I'm using this lens more than the 85mm f1.4 G.
