Is the Minolta 28-135 4-4.5 a good lens?
Jul 16, 2013

I hope this hasn't been asked 1000 times. I *really* love my 18-135, but I know it's a little dark for indoor work. So, I want something that covers the same range but is a little brighter. An 18-135 3.5 apparently doesn't exist. The 2.8 lenses all seem to cover the low end (16-50, 16-80, 17-70, etc) or the high end (70-200?). But I was on Ebay and came across a listing for a 28-135 4-4.5.

So, the question: Is it a good lens? Is it worth $400? Is it any good for video? Is there a better solution?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
