Minolta AF 24-85mm F3.5-4.5
8 months ago

I have several lenses for my A99 and for general / walk around I use the Sigma 24-70/2.8 or Tamron SP 24-135 f3.5-5.6 Asph IF. I never liked much the soft corners of the Sigma ( though the center is very sharp ) and the Tamron, although great on lower MP cameras, is a bit soft on the A99. I've found an almost pristine Minolta 24-85 on sale on the web, and was tempted by its small size and good focal range at a low cost. I've always loved Minolta lenses great colors and contrast, but I've never had the chance to try that one.

I'd appreciate all comments from folks that had/tried/have this lens in helping me to make a decision.

Thanks!

... Lucas
