Minolta AF 28mm F2.8 A-mount lens review by TwoDave
|TwoDave#44373 date: Sep-20-2019|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta AF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5|
Minolta AF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 (1994 Release)
SonyZeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 (2008 Release)
Soft corners until stopped down
|comment:||I like this small lens for street photography on a film body when I feel like getting cozy with the public.|
Landscapes: I don't expect the corners to clear until f/16, which is fine, since with wide angle/small aperture I tend to get low down to the ground
If I stick around for wide open starynight shooting, I won't expect SonyZeiss IQ but lighter weight at the end of a long day does have merit.
This 28mm is only the 2nd Minolta AF lens I've ever had with oily aperture blades, yet with the help of a tutorial video, CLA is not too troublesome.
