I have included several photos from each lens. Photos which more or less exhibit the lenses at their best (or the best I could get out of it : ) I believe, others can correct me here, that the a580 has a weaker focusing motor--the a850/a900 have stronger focusing motors, so AF for me was fast on the Minolta and Zeiss (though not silent like the Sigma). I shoot an a850. Maybe you have a poor copy of the Minolta, or maybe it just isn't your style, not sure. Although I always crave sharpness and technical quality, the Minolta always tugs at me with better photos.  Hope these help. I labeled them by lens. All are shot within two stops of wide open. Enjoy.
