|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Tamron 70-300mm USD|

Minolta 135mm f/2.8 AF
Tamrom 90mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1
|price paid:||$50 at Craigslist|
|negative:||Purple Fringing - very bad|
|comment:||As inexpensive telephoto zoom lens - it is good find.|
This lens is heavy-built like a tank. AF is fast on FF A850.
Bokeh is good - as BC lens. Sharpness is good up to 250mm, detail becomes little softer at 300mm.
Minimal focus - very good.
Only issue that seriously drove me crazy - Purple Fringing. I couldn't use this lens in contrasty conditions because of PF.
