Summary: Well, I bought this lens because it is extremely cheap, and I heard it is good enough, not as good as /4 , but lighter. So I bought even 2 of them- one as present to my father , one to use it on my A58. Pictures I get from it are good , sometimes even better then from sal35f18, and I definitely like them more then from 18-55 kit.
A beautiful Minolta beer can. Service great. Speedy shipping. Very happy

Summary: I needed to replace the kit lens on my Sony a100. I was hunting some Elk in the Great Smokie Mountains Park. It was one of those days, raining, cold and the only pictures I was able to get were of Elk butts. Anyway the lens became very wet in spite of all precautions, and 2 weeks later the focus mechanism froze. Great opportunity to purchase what I have really wanted, a Minolta beer can. A wonderful purchase. Delivered almost before the auction was over.
Summary: Minolta lenses are legendary for their true color and sharp photos. This lens is no exception. We bought this lens for resale. It is well built, focuses fast, and looks great. If you have a Sony digital camera with all of that wonderful technology you need to get Minolta lenses to realize that full potential of quality photos... that is unless you want to spend thousands of dollar buying comparable Sony "G" series lenses.
Summary: Very easy to use and the clarity of shots are priceless. The interchangeability, additional features and accessories associated with this lens is really great. I've been using it with several different Minolta's.
