ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Minolta 28-85mm F3.5-4.5
price paid:110 AUD
positive:Sharp even at minimum F45 aperture, feels light but with a good weight.

Even at maximum f4 aperture RAW and JPG photos captured w ith this lens are sharp and of good quality.

Quick autofocusing especially in daylight.

Hood is 55mm size -fits the DT 18-55 SAM F3.5-5.6, which is very nice to knw,

Took a photo of a floating church out on the water at Main Beach, QLD Australia with this lens on my DSLR-A390-the 82.5-300mm zoom range was ideal.
negative:Plastic lens mount
