ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Minolta 135 STF
(+ various other lenses)
price paid:1 444,15 € (used)
positive:+ very smooth bokeh
+ has autofocus (unlike other STF lenses)
+ quite useful focal length
negative:- focus range limiter has no option for whole range
- would be nice to have better magnification
- aperture wise bit on the slow side
- not the cheapest lens
comment:If the 135STF was already nice lens, providing similar STF effect to little shorter focal length with modern AF makes this lens even more useful. T5.6 is bit disappointing, but not the end of the world.
