“Great versatility. A little more than the 28-80 but worth it for the time you save changing the lens and greater scope it gives you in pictures. Consider buying just the body of the camera and fixing it up with this lens rather than going with the standard 28-80.” – by A Customer
Very good all-around lens
“Well, I am very surprised to find this piece of glass a pleasure to work with and I now use it for most of my photos. The mechanics have worked flawlessly and the photos are clear and sharp. I do find the lens rather “slow”, although at f3.5-4.5 it is still faster than most zoom lenses in this price range (maybe I’ve been spoiled by my faster fixed lenses). I therefore use 800 ASA film. The lens mates very well with the Minolta camera, is well balanced and lightweight. For the money it is an excellent choice for wide-angle to portraits and low power zoom. All in all I find the lens to be an excellent choice for an “all purpose” lens. “ – by Howard P
“When this (28-105mm xi, the power zoom version) arrived I snapped it in and began shooting. Wow! Every Shot was sharper than my “better” images from the longer, wider Sony. Every shot! It gives back very acceptable, flash-lit, indoors photos, too. Get the flash setting down and wow yourself! And speaking only of the power zoom (xi) feature, it works on all Sony alphas. It took very little to get used to and, so far, does not seem to over-sap the batteries. I do most always use my vertical grip which does a better job of handling slower zooms, with its 2 batteries, besides making my “vertical shots” so much easier. “ – by benboise
