Minolta 135 2.8???

It is small, very small and light for what it is.

Its very well made, mostly metal.

It's sharp across the frame, very sharp.

Its inexpensive at least second hand!

It looks very strange on my A77, like something from a bygone era, which of course it is but why can't current manufactures come up with such tiny lenses, if they made an nex 85mm this size everyone would be praising how small it is!
