|comment:||The Minolta AF24-85RS F3.5-4.5 is on par with new "digital" designed carry-around lenses, but I find the colors better on this one. The zoom range is also good on APS-C, and nice to know that it can be used on a FF camera, just in case.|
Only minor disadvantage is that this lens is not ADI compatible. However, I have never really experienced noticable difference between ADI and non-ADI lenses by flash shooting.
I only sold this lens as I bought a Minolta AF24-105D instead.
