      I have had this lens for about 6 years on a Minolta Maxxum 7000 before I moved to a Sony Alpha 350. I loved this lens so much that I took it with me through the digital transition. There are couple of downsides when you use a full frame lens on an APS-C sensor but those downsides are trivial compared to the clarity and vibrancy you get from a classic Minolta lens. Of course, you can get the same results with a new lens but then you would be poorer by about a grant.

      Though a bit on the heavy side, these lenses are faster, smoother and sharper than the stock lenses that came with Sony. I have to admit that they used to make good stuff when they were manufacturing stuff in Japan. The new cheap lenses are made in China don’t perform as well. I believe it has every thing to do with the low cost manufacturing than about the countries. China does make really good stuff otherwise.

      If you have a DSLR from Sony, and if you have this lens in your attic, I’d say use it. I have compared the results with the new SAM lens and there is something about the clarity and the colors in this old timer that I like very much. Above all I love the lens blur on this one, comparable to very expensive lenses.
