comment:Exactley what I expected. Thought about the APO but liked this range starting at 75. Found a mint copy at a decent price and went for it. Great color and bokeh and sharp enough esp stopped down a little. Would have loved the G, but for its price this is a nice pick up. You know what you are getting with this old minolta glass. Lasted this long should last a while longer.
