Re: Minolta Colors, 28-75 2.8?

The 28-75/2.8 is a fine match for the original Mino 80-200/2.8.  They are both a little yellow, and a little brighter than other Mino's.  The 85/1.4 and 35/1.4 are also good matches, being also a little brighter and little yellow.

I also agree that the Tamron 35-105/2.8 SP is a good close match, although a touch more red.

I've owned/used multiple copies of all of these lenses for 20+ years.  Most other original Mino's are like low contrast versions of high contrast Leica R lenses.  Neutral to cold in color balance.  Very deep green, purple.  Some prefer warmer lenses for people photos.  I personally prefer the neutral/cold tones.

At least that's how my eyes see these things.  Others are sure to see differently, as they should.

All great lenses so have fun with whatever you have!
