Minolta AF 28mm F2.8 A-mount lens review by pphu
|pphu#10601 date: Oct-18-2012|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Carl Zeiss 2470Z|
|price paid:||100 USD (USED)|
Very sharp. See comments.
Excellent flare control.
Extremely tight built and good feel.
Fast and quite AF.
|negative:||Not so good extreme corner sharpness.|
|comment:||This is a GOOD Lens, I mean it. Though a 1985 design, it is not old, Sony has a exactly same copy for it for several years.|
If you can find it for 100USD, don't think, go for it!!
It has the typical Minolta household color, a top class built, I mean the focus ring even feels like a manual lens. Center sharpness is on par with Carl Zeiss 24-70 on F2.8, corner is not so good wide open, but at F5.6 it is as good as center.
Love this little lens on my A900, really nice for a everyday walk around option.
Did I mention the nice built in hood? LOL.
