ownership:I have experience with this lens
compared to:Minolta 50/2.8
price paid:
positive:Sharp, great colors, good bokeh.
negative:Slot AF, but not worse than the Minolta 50/2.8 MACRO. Must use the 1:1 adapter to get life-size.
comment:This an underrated inexpensive old macro. It is really sharp and gives great results. The only "snag" is that is requires an adapter to get to 1:1. Without it is only 1:2. I really like this lens.
