|comment:||This minolta lens is truly a "secret handhake". Though I have only tried it on APSC bodies, it gives amazing sharpness (detail), but contrast is lagging compared to the CZ. The MFD is not good, it's sort of deal breaker since you cannot you it freely indoors, at partys and so on. but for walkaround it's great, and it gives really nice colours.|
Did I mention that it's build from pure metal? it's quite heavy, but it's one af the best handling lenses I have tried. everything is smooth, and focus is fast, i just really like it.
The bad: No hood.. this lens can definately flare, a hood would help tremendously here. there are workarounds though.
Great lens, one i would love to try on FF, and one I also recommend!
