comment:This lens is just lovely, build is excellent this is how a lens should be built.
Color is like other minolta lenses from this time, great!
AF is fast, my 7D hunts a little, on the Dynax 7 it´s faster and less hunting.
Would be nice to test this on a700...
MFD is 1.5 meter and that is one of two bad things with this lens.
Flare is the other week spot.
