User profile: Professional

Cons: Great on film with Dynax 9 or 7; less good on Alpha 900. Never pinsharp like the most of the other Minolta pearls from the analoge age. Still: for prints no larger than A4 you will be completely satisfied.

Pros: Internal focussing unlike the Sony Zeiss ZA 2.8/24-70 mm. No changes in lens legth during zooming wich I prefer. Beautifull color rendition.

Summary: Good lens though not top of the bill anymore on fullframe Alpha's.
