I'm considering purchasing the SAL 11-18mm lens to use on a A7II via adapter.  Minolta had an 11-18mm as well and I'd like to ask:  is there any difference in the Sony-branded 11-18mm and the Minolta version (e.g., image quality)?  Is there any benefit to purchasing the Sony version rather than the Minolta? Thank you.

Had a problem recently purchasing 'two' Sony/Sigma 10-20mm 4-5.6 wide angle lenses and both would not focus in any way.  Stopped down, manual focus, etc. no luck.  First one I figured was a defective one, but the second? So did some checking and although Sigma says their non-HSM 10-20mm lens should work fine with my Sony A77.  Now, am very spooked needless-to-say.  So, not being able to afford a Sony brand lens presently am going to rent a Sony 11-16mm for a trip with a tight deadline....
