Period of use: 500 months

Strengths:

Very Minolta color (to me, this is the definition of Minolta color -- which is a good thing), good sharpness, flare resistance, and better than average bokeh. Classically perfect smoothness for focus and great build overall. Works very well on a focal reducer. Generally, dirt cheap.


Weaknesses:

Slight glow from SA. Corners are not good on 24MP APS-C until you stop down; it's a "B" on APS-C. The diamond-pattern rubber focus collar feels great, but does tend to stretch a bit and get loose over years of use.


Comments:

This particular lens has been with me since the late 1970s when I used it on an SRT101 and XK. Once, I fell on it hitting the filter thread directly on concrete with my full weight behind it -- minor gouges in the black finish, but no other damage! This is an amazingly good cheap kit lens. Slower and less character than the 50mm f/1.4, but not really inferior to it.
