comment:I bought this lens today from an old german man and it shows me again how great an original Lens from Minolta can be. My copy is brand new, which was bought in 1986 by the man. Absolutly sharp either normal Mode or macro Mode. The colour ist great und build Like A Tank with metal and glass. I'm in love with it and it becomes my walk around Lens now.
