price paid:
positive:Great sharpness, excellent distortion control

comment:I felt sorry for this lens, which has been in my Minolta collection for quite some time before I finally took it out for regular use, only after I got great results from Nikkor's 20/2.8. Much sharper than the less expensive zoom version, and the quality explains the price difference
