comment:I bought this a few months ago and only just got round to using it. I really like it. It's a lot like my previous Minolta primes (24/2.8 and 50/1.7) it's light, compact and performs very well.

I had wanted something wider than my CZ 24-80 for a while, though as it will only be used occasionally couldn't justify spending a lot of money. This little lens fits the bill nicely!
