Minolta AF 28-100mm F3.5-5.6 D A-mount lens review by AVLB
|AVLB#46900 date: Nov-13-2022|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||24-105 D|
|positive:||Nothing, except cheap|
|negative:||Cheap build; plastic mount.|
Lacks sharpness at any f-stop.
|comment:||Probably the worst lens I have owned, except for the 18-70 DT lens. How could Minolta put their name on this as a FF lens. |
Even stopped down to f11, this lens never gets sharp at any focal length. I don't believe it is my copy, as I had an 28-80 at one time and that was awful too.
Minolta really let themselves go in the early 2000s and hence their downfall. The 24-105 is head and shoulders above this lens and that is presumably why Sony carried on making that one and not the 28-100.
This lens will be going to the local charity shop. They may get £5 for it.
