Minolta 24-85mm RS f/3.5-4.5 on Full Frame
Feb 1, 2013

Been a while since I've used mine on the A900.

Curious if any readers here still use this lens on the A99/900/850 cameras at all? My impressions that I recall were that it was nice and sharp in the corners at f5.6 on full frame, and CA's nearly gone at f/8 and the corners and center were nice and sharp (at it's peak there).

My recollection is that it was the best price/performance for a genuine wide angle to mid-telephoto full frame lens in all of the A-Mount available lenses. There are a lot of zooms that start at 24mm but I think this one was the best performer of them all on full frame for under 300.00.

Can anyone comment if you have experience with this lens please?

Thank you!
Carl
