ownership:I own this lens
compared to:ZA135/1.8, Minolta 80-200 HS G. I like both of these lenses better.... but then they are both tanks - all have their niches. ;)
price paid:70 USD
positive:Sharp. Small. Minolta Colour. Pretty fast focusing. Locks on well, and quickly. Works great with eye AF on A99ii.
negative:Purple fringing.
comment:My copy quite sharp - if a bit travel worn. Glad I picked it up. Will pack it along when weight and size are an advantage.
