|comment:||I bought this lens as I was looking for some more wide open glass. 28 mm at the short end is enough for me. For some architectural purposes I use Tokina 19-35.|
This unit has some significant features. First it's pretty heavy which is a plus as it properly stabilizes body. Second it has quite fast AF and it works even in dark spaces. Third it built like a tank and that's why is worth to carry in hostile conditions like foot trips in mountains.
Suming up this is a sample of brillant work made by Minolta in 80's and this specific glass is so cheap that it's must to have it in your collection.
