|comment:||I'm not a professional but i do a lot of shooting ( pics and video)and i just love this lens. Bought it real cheap as it came along with a 35-70 minolta ( which i already had - but then again a Beercan at that price is a real bargain).|
I never managed to get much out of the Sigma and when i did i had to manually adjust just about everything ( it would always over-compensate , the white balance was just never right and the motor failed me as well - got repaired under warranty after almost one year of use).
I was thinking of getting the Tamron USD (which looks good) and then i read the reviews below and got the Minolta.
On my A57, with the beercan, i can shoot about anything leaving everything in auto settings and it's just perfect.
It's just like if those two were made for each other
