|comment:||This is a great all-round lens in my opinion. It focuses fast, although i think that the back-focus is inconvenient even though it allows use of special filters since the front element doesn't rotate.|
Sharpness and color are classical Minolta, and I like how the zoom ring locks at both ends of the range.
The macro function I rarely use. I find it better to use a dedicated macro lens.
In all, a recommended all-round lens if you can live with the weight and MFD. In my opinion the IQ easily overcomes those "problems".
