ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Tamron 24-70mm f2.8
Tamron 15-30mm f2.8
price paid:240USD
positive:Very compact, quick/accurate focusing and sharp. Very nice old-school Minolta colors. Great as a walk around lens.
negative:For what I paid, I can't complain.
comment:This is my 1st review ever...since I received my A99ll. I love this lens over my Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 set at 24mm. Using the Tamron 15-30mm f2.8 indoors can be down right tiring without a monopod. I don't mined that it's not weather sealed because, I really don't use it outdoors when the weather isn't great.
