Weird MF/AF switch
Weight (not to important)
comment:Nice standaard lens on APS-C. Good wide-angle on FF, no distorsion. But a lot of vignette on FF wide open. Not the typical Minolta colors but not bad at all either. Since I own the 20mm f/1,8 I'm used to the MF/AF switch but it still is a weird system.
