comment:This is my walk about lens. I had sony 24-104, tamron 24-135, and tamron 17-50 f2.8, and decided to keep minolta 28-105. Tamron 17-50 is a great lens but reach did not do it for me. Tamron 24-135 great reach but slower. Sony 24-105 even though I got it in a great price ($250.00) and is my favorite focal length, did not convince me.
