Hey Andy. Glad to see you posting. How does that 24-105mm compare to the Sigma 24-135mm I've seen you mention liking so much?

Hello Jim

To begin I must confess Jim that i had to make hard choices since the buying

of a faster and wider lens the tamron 17 50 f2.8 (sharp by the way wide open a few stops dow ) This lens came to replace in a sense the famous minolta couple that i could'nt not afford at the time:minolta 17-35 and 28-75.I solve my problem byingone lens even if the tamron is an aps-c lens. Checking Photozone this lens is well regarded (the users put it second after minolta 17-35 G).

A friend of mine ask me if i could'nt sell my minolta 24-105.I think i am about the only one, north of the 50 parallel, whohas a digitalminolta. Suddenly i began testing all

three walkaround lens that i had: minolta 24-105, 24-85 sigma 24-135. The softnessof one of your favorite Jim the 24-85 minolta lens surprise me a lot. This lens

stopped down was ok but wide open compare to the others, was far behind: maybe

my copy which was a refurbished one from Cameta was faulty. So i'm selling that lens

instead of my 24-105 . The sigma 24-135 is a wonderful walkaround and sharp lens without the proverbial warm colors of the minolta lens. So for day to day photography i use the sigma and when i want what i call pompously a certain artist

touch the 24- 105 is there. Landscape and portrait are myusual meal in photography. Andminolta primescan't fit in my budget range but life is fantastic

the same.

VoilĂ* Jim the everlasting story of my quest of good lens. I should'nt read mentors

like you who make one's mouth waterwith the famous minolta lens.

regards

Andy

Please be indulgent with my english writing...

Oh yeah! Jimi'm introducing youFrouFrou my poodle-bichon dog.

This photo was taken by my sigma 24-135. This lens at the long end

is almost as sharp as my 50 f1.7 and has a nice bokeh.

The photo with the boy fishing that you post here by the way make me think of a classic Norman Rockwell illustration and was the one thatshowed me the

magic of minolta prime lens. My salutations to all the great guys posting

here for once i don't have to endure here the whining about the future Sony

Dslr and can relaxwatching great photos.

regards to all

Andy

I like also my Tamron 28-300 xr but that's an other story...

It looks like you took that at 1/8 second, too. You've got to love the anti-shake. :-)
