    Minolta 28-135mm test

    There's been some pretty vituperous discussion elsewhere decrying the Minolta 28-135mm f4/4.5.
    I thought I'd do a comparison with my new Sony 70-300mm G SSM.

    This image has centre, edge and corner crops from both lenses at a focal length of 135mm and both wide open, also the 28-135mm at f5.6 (same as the 70-300 G).
    Seeing as the "G" is only at the start of it's range and the 28-135mm is at full stretch (135mm), I think this is a bit rough on the Mino, maybe too rough.
    Anyway, the "G" is clearly ahead of the Mino at f4.5, but with both at f5.6 I think they are fairly close.

    This is comparing both lenses at f8. Bearing in mind that the Mino is still at full stretch, tell me what you think.
