The 50 mm format, excellent for every day use. Renown for its excellent Minolta colour and almost 3D rendition
of landscape scenes. www.Dyxum.com has a full review of this lens,and is highly sought after.
The F2.8 maximum aperture is still very sharp with minimal vignetting.
The ability to give a 1:1 ratio in macro mode is very handy. If sharpness is everything and your photography
doesn't require F2.8, examine the Minolta 50mm 3.5 macro, tack sharp and a modern design, what the heck buy both
they are cheap enough.
