Minolta 28-80mm f4-5.6
Minolta 35-70mm f3.5-4.5
Minolta 35-105mm f3.5-4.5

Minolta 35-70mm f4
Tamron 17-50mm f2.8
|price paid:||£20 s/h|
|positive:||Vastly better than the previous 18-70mm piece of crap Sony used to have as a kit lens.|
Reasonably sharp, but with a 24M sensor, you will probably need to sharpen or shrink the image before you can look too closely.
|negative:||Not worth paying more than the s/h price to get it as a kit lens.|
The lightness comes from being very plastic.
Very short rotation of the focus ring makes manual focusing harder.
|comment:||You could do as well as this by getting one of the old Minolta kit lenses, but it's very cheap, fits easily into a pocket or bag and if you lose it, so what?|
