ownership:I have experience with this lens
compared to:KM 28-75/2.8
price paid:
positive:Buil, MF-focus ring is exelent, AF-speed
negative:Soft wide open, minimun focus distance
comment:Tested this one, KM 28-75 and Minolta 28-70G.
Build is great, image quality really good when stoped down, really soft wide open (not necessary a bad thing)
This is a heavy lens, I like that.

The KM28-75 is the best alround of the 3, fast AF, light (at cost of build) good close focus.
