Not a true macro

Minolta 28-85mm f3.5 macro..Oldie and a goodie! Can pick one up on Ebay for like 40-80 dollars. All metal construction. Great lens...

Not a true macro as it is 0.25x max not 1:1 like a true macro. It's also slow and soft above 50mm unless stopped down a lot. All and all not very good as a macro lens.
