Minolta MD Rokkor 28-85 3.5-4.5 zoom lens, some thoughts

I was gifted a MD Rokkor 28-85 3.5-4.5 zoom lens courtesy fellow Classic Camera Revival host Mike Bitaxi last year, and it's a really nice piece of glass. In terms of general purpose zoom, it dusts, Nikon and Canon's offerings in similar focal lengths.

Now I exposed a variety of focal lengths. I found I got some vignetting at 28mm which can be cropped out when framed loosely, other than that all the negative scans look fabulous. The Rokkor Files did an extensive write up on the MD Rokkor 28-85 3.5-4.5 zoom lens and were very impressed with the performance.

If you're looking for a nice walk around lens and you shoot Minolta manual focus, MD Rokkor 28-85 3.5-4.5 zoom lens is a great solution, especially for travel.
