The Minolta 28-105 xi zoom was not even considered that good back in the film days but maybe in a way, its optical characteristics jived well with the A99II sensor. The non-motorized zoom 28-105 was considered better. I wonder how well a Tamron 28-105 2.8 works with the A99II....

Probably not very well based on Dyxum reviews. Even people with 12mp cameras complain about softness. It would look even worse on an A99ii. Maybe if you stopped way down but then the constant f2.8 is irrelevant.
