positive:This is awfully great piece of glass considering the price. Everything is great, i.e colors (juicy Minolta colors), sharpness, wide focal range. I gave 4 for flare control only because the hood is needed when you shout against the sun. But overall the flare control is also perfect.
Super lens!
negative:Absolutely nothing.
comment:If you find it around 100 dollars just buy.
