  • Konica Minolta 28-75mm f/2.8 D AF

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Compact, light, razor sharp, and cheap for a 2.8
    Just a tad soft at the extremes when at 2.8...but that's to be expected with any zoom.

    A great lens that ends up staying on my 7D more times then not. When I was buying, I looked at both this copy and the Tamron version and thought the images overall were slightly better with the Minolta, so its worth the few extra bucks. For a lens that produces sharp pictures with great color at its price point, it can't be beat, even when compared with the 28-70.
