ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Minolta 24 to 70 G
It has its own look, different than a G lens, with an outstanding bokah
price paid:400 USD used
positive:This is one of my most favorite lenses. It has a beautiful rendition that is sharp, contrasty and with that lovely Minolta classic color.
negative:can't think of anything at all
comment:If you can find one of these, it is a keeper! I use this a lot, on my A850 and it works wonderfully on my Nex 7 with auto focus adapter
