ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Well, what to compare with?
price paid:???
positive:First, it is not this lens but a Minolta MD Rokkor 135mm f2.8 MD-I.
Second,can't say the price as i bought a lot of gear in a "pack" from a seller on FB.
Very sharp at f2.8 close but not close to infinity.
Lovely old Minolta colors.
Rendring is top-notch as Minoltas used to be.
Built like a tank and very smooth focusing and so also the f-click aperture ring.
Small and lightweight for a 135/2.8 lens
Works really great with the a7RII and the Lens Compensation app.
negative:Kind of short builtin lens hood, else nothing.
comment:Lovely lens, thats all.
