|compared to:||Minolta AF20RS. Minolta AF28f2. Minolta AF35f2. Zeiss FE2,8/35. Minolta AF50. Sigma 50mm f1:4. Zeiss 85mm f1.4. Zeiss 24-70 f2.8.|
|positive:||Impressive look when mounted on your camera.|
|negative:||Mines bigger than yours approach to lens building. Heavy for a 50mm. No improvement on £65.00 Minolta AF 50mm f1.7|
No better than a Good Minolta AF50 f1.7 and much more of a pain in the *** to live with. Best used as a 75mm portrait lens on cropped sensor cameras.
I have recently acquired a late model with the smooth black finish and it is greatly improved. It's still the same size as most 85's but the new example is really sharp with great contrast, fast focusing and very quiet.
