In between lens sizes - Minolta 35-105mm glass?
May 4, 2013

Hi,

I currently have a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 (which I use as my standard lens mostly) and a Tamon 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Li which does the job at the other end of the scale (for the time being). But I have frequently found myself needing something longer than the 50mm but not quite needing the full 300mm. So I have been looking around at a mid point lens that would be a good general lens.

I have the Minolta 35-105mm AF f/3.5-5.6 lens locally and was wondering what peoples views on it were? It seems to fit the bill and is a good price.

Any other suggestions?
