Re: Can't decide?: Little gem: 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 Minolta lens

I agree with the 24-85, absolutely wonderful lens, and has become my kit lens replacement. I consistently get images that are just excellent out of it; color/sharpness/bokeh are just great. I got mine for $120 used, and is a very nice deal.

I also have an old 35-105/3.5-4.5, which is also a good lens that I picked up for $15 (had to fix the aperture though). This one is very sharp on its tele end, even wide open. Though you'll have to give up the wide end a bit, and it is a bit soft wide open at 35, and has a far minimum focus distance.
