Minolta AF 28-135mm F4-4.5 A-mount lens review by DavidB
|DavidB#2052 date: Mar-26-2007|
flare control: 3
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||24-105 zoom,|
200 2.8 APO
|positive:||Very sharp, good colour, excellent range for film & FF, a good all-around lens that I use if only taking one. Very solid build.|
|negative:||Heavy, lack of hood, flare can be an issue if shooting into light. Front element rotates with zoom. Don't use macro much at all... have 100 macro.|
|comment:||I have owned this lens since it first came on the market, and it is the one I always take if travelling "light" (for film or FF a900). |
I use the 24-105 on my 7D as I like the compactness, light weight and wider angle on APC.
This is an excellent lens in almost every respect, and has never given me any trouble.
