flare control: 3
|ownership:||I have experience with this lens|
Minolta 35-70 f4
Minolta 28-85 f3.5-4.5
|positive:||Very good allround zoom|
Actually quite sharp even wide open
|negative:||Not good to use if the light is so low, that you'll have to focus manually.|
|comment:||This is an underrated lens!|
I've owned this one since 1992, when I bought it for my 7xi.
Nowadays I find myself using it more and more often as my walk-around lens - and the results are very satisfying. Give it a try - it's cheap.
Motorzoom is ok - motorfocus is not, but AF is ok, so you'll probably not have to use MF.
Edit 11/07: Very fine on the A700 too. Fast focus - good for portraits too.
