Any thoughts on SAL28F28 (28mm f2.8) lens?
May 26, 2009

I've read good and bad reviews about this lens. One say it's old Minolta design and need many improvements to keep up with today's technology, other praises it's weight, DOF, fast focus and brightness. Currently this lens is out of stock but I just found one for sale in Sony Style Montreal (CA). It's the cheapest prime available. For my a350 it would give me a good 42mm standard lens. I'm on a budget so I'm thinking of buying it instead of a (more expensive) Sony HVL F42AM flash (currently I own no external flash).

Looking forward to your comments.
