|negative:||Sharpness, contrast, sound, macro ability|
|comment:||This is the worst Minolta lens I've tried (out of 15 in my lifetime). I can see that it is not sharp even on the camera display and viewfinder (Sony SLT-A35). It has however colors so maybe it can be usable as outdoor portrait lens. On the other side I have for other lenses I prefer for portraits.|
Focus is slow and loud. Minimal focal distance too long.
Price was 1200 SEK (approx 136€, 178$) But then I got a Dynax 7000i house and Big Beercan as well.
edit - sold and everyone seems to know it's value. I got 1 SEK=14 cent on swedish ebay (tradera)
