Minolta AF 28-135mm F4-4.5 A-mount lens review by Tetraodon
|Tetraodon#6089 date: Sep-20-2009|
flare control: 3
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 100-300 APO D|
KoMi 28-75 2.8 D
|negative:||- MFD (1,5 m)|
- Prone to flare (no Hood included)
|comment:||I bought this lens 20 years ago and it costed me an arm and a leg. Since then it travelled with me around the world and there was never any glitch. It's build like a tank - IQ always has been top.|
I now use it on my A700 - IQ is still tremendous. It' prone to flare, because Minolta never provided a hood for this gem. Focussing is up to date
Annoying is the MFD of 1.5 m.
Nevertheless: Sony should reanimate this legendary lens to digital standards (coating and MFD) - ok: it wont happen ...
