Summary: Hi, I was looking for "catch"...this lens...till i saw this US leaving seller; from which i acquired his lens. This lens it's now mounted on my lovely Full frame Sony A900 DSLR body! I'm extremely happier! Sincerely, Alex!
Summary: I bought the Konica Minolta AF 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 D Lens three weeks ago and was immediately impressed on this inexpensive lens. It has a macro function which is good for close up object. The color is fantastic. Overall, I'd recommend the lens if you want a walk around lens.
Summary: The Minolta 24-105MM lens was the first zoom of with this range. It set a standard that has yet to be beaten. This lens should be in every Maxxum/Sony DSLR user's arsenal of lens. It is light enough to be hand held for most natural lighting situations. Compact enough to fit in any camera case.
Summary: When I bought my Sony Alpha 200 camera, I loved everything about it except the lens that came with it. The 18-70mm takes decent pictures, but it is light and plastic feeling, and the overall zoom length is just not enough.
Summary: I found another vendor on E-Bay that mis lead me to believe I was purchasing a camera that was complete but it did not include Batteries (Which added a considerable amount of cost to the camera). I am looking for another camera that will fit this lens and have not found one yet.
Konica Minolta 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 D AF review by Nikola_Konsulov
6 March 2009
Summary: Some of the previous reviews claim the build quality is not good. I beg to differ. The build of this lens is excellent. Sure, the external body is made of polycarbonate, but it is durable enough and the inside of the lens obviously has plenty of metal (and glass) due to its weight.
Pros: Small and durable build, seems to be plenty sharp when stopped down a bit, bokeh, no zoom creep, zoom and focus rings nice and tight, but relatively dampened well.
