Re: Minolta 28-135, not me

That's the beauty of the 28-135.  It doesn't get any better beyond f4/4.5.  At zoom extremes, perhaps f5.6 is a little better.  But that lens can be used wide open and beat anything from anyone.

Only issue I have with it is the heavy pincushion distortion at 135mm.  But hey, heavy models love it cause it makes them look slimmer.  And I've found a sweet spot between the macro mode and regular which allows close focus without locking in full macro.  I even put a block inside the macro lock to allow for going closeup without the switch.

The lens has a real "Steam Punk" vibe to it.  Got to love the quirks.
