After your recommendation and sample shots, I researched the lens quite a bit through google searches and I got the impression that it was rather neutral in colour rendition. It is seems well-renowned for it's sharpness but not for character. These opinions are always subjective, so tried exploring the lens' capabilities to see for myself. Still seems pretty sharp at f/2.8, but does it have a distinctive character? Up to the viewer I suppose!

I don't have any experience of the Minolta 24mm so can't compare.

Glad you like a few of the shots

That is exactly its character... sharp for a 24mm at f2.8 with a relatively good contrast !


Ahhh - OK, in that case it's showing it's character quite well!

I'm impressed with it wide open - used to seeing a hazy mush with some other lenses
