ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Minolta 28-135mm
price paid:
positive:Build quality - original all metal construction. Very nice "all around" range.
negative:Heavy for such a small lens, but that's to be expected of all the Minotla 1st generation lenses.
comment:I find myself reaching for this lens more than any other. That may change in the near future once the weather clears and I can break out the 28-135mm I received.
