Comments about Konica - Minolta Konica - Minolta 28-75mm f/2.8 D Wide Angle-Telephoto Auto Focus Zoom Lens for the Maxxum & Sony Alpha Mount.:

I used KM's 18 - 200mm lens for a while, and then decided to try this one. At first I found myself wishing it had a longer focal range --then again, I was used to the other lens. It wasn't until I went back to the 18 - 200 lens that I realized how good this one (28 - 75) really is. This lens focuses so much faster than the other, and the consistent 2.8 f-stop allows you to use a reasonably fast shutter in relatively low light. Really solid lens all the way around (and a bit heavy, but I kinda like it that way =)

This is an amazing lens for indoors and outdoors pictures. Is crisp, fast, clear, contrasty and sharp. Lens hood supplied is not for 28mm focal lenght, no problem with others. I always travel with it.

This lens is great in that it has 2.8 through the whole range of the lens. I just wish it was wider on the low end.

A very nice lens. Pretty sharp at f 2.8 with very nicely defocused backgrounds. Very good for portraits. It is a heavy lens though.

Comments about Konica - Minolta Konica - Minolta 28-75mm f/2.8 D Wide Angle-Telephoto Auto Focus Zoom Lens for the Maxxum & Sony Alpha Mount.:

This lens, along with the 80-200 f2.8 I already had, has been the workhorse lens shooting high sports with my Konica-Minolta Maxxum 7D.
As the sports editor of our weekly paper, I use these two lenses almost exclusively, shooting in small-school gyms without flash or outdoors under lights. The small school gyms and fields I cover are typically not lighted with photographers in mind.

Comments about Konica - Minolta Konica - Minolta 28-75mm f/2.8 D Wide Angle-Telephoto Auto Focus Zoom Lens for the Maxxum & Sony Alpha Mount.:

The K-M 28-75mm is a choice lens, extremely well proportioned and cut. I would recommend it for Portrait photography, although some say the 85-100mm is better...I am fully satisfied with this model.
I use it on my Maxxum 7D yet it should perform splendidly with the new Sony A-100.
Highly recommended...a serious purchase.
