ownership:I own this lens
compared to:
price paid:125 € (used)
positive:Very sharp
Good zoom range
Well built
Quite quick AF
Looks nice on 7D
Cheap for a very good Lens
negative:No hood
comment:It's perfect. Without a hood, it can show some flare, but I love the way it flares.

" The price and quality of this great vintage Minolta lens makes it a must have for the cheap lineup " --> I do agree. Highly Recommend.

PS: in Internet I've seen that the focal length to Max Aperture figures - f4-28-40mm, and f4.5-41mm to 135mm, but in my copy, i still have f4 28 - 60mm, from 70 - 135 f4.5.
