|Collingsandheal#38867 date: May-23-2017|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Zeiss 24-70mm f2.8. Minolta and Sony ( I have owned both ) 24-105mm. Konica / Minolta 28-70mm f2.8. and all the other Sony / Minolta kit lenses that I have owned. That's just about all of them.|
|price paid:||£81.00 used|
|positive:||Small, light and sharp. Great colours and good contrast.|
|negative:||The hood is rather lightweight.|
|comment:||I needed to pick up a small zoom lens to go on the a99Mk2 for traveling with. I found this mint example in the Netherlands.|
For what it is, this lens is simply brilliant on the a99Mk2. I genuinely thought the resolution would let the camera down but it doesn't. Funny, I have owned all the others over the years but somehow managed to sidestep the 28-105.
Thoroughly recommended general purpose lens. Sharp, contrasty, works wide open, though not very wide, and operates smoothly, which other variants don't.
