- Product InformationWith a maximum zoom ratio of 2.8x, the Konica Minolta AF 28 mm - 80 mm lens is a versatile camera lens and an excellent value. The Konica Minolta AF 28 mm - 80 mm lens covers the most popular zoom range to photograph daily life events. The Konica lens features a minimum focusing distance of 15 inches and a maximum magnification ratio of 0.26x. This close focusing capability assures an accurate focus down to 14.9 inches, without the need for a macro setting, with an aperture range of f/3.5-5.6. This versatile camera lens provides a wide range for nature and landscape photography or snapshots and home photography.

Universal Fit - Great product
This was purchased to replace a lens used for the last 15 yrs. Although the company has been bought by Sony, the lens is still of high quality and universally fits Minolta, Konica/Minolta, and Sony A series cameras. Highly recommended and I would not hesitate buying another, as opposed to purchasing a Sony brand lens.

Good except for a small problem or two......
This is one of the 'kit' lenses from the latter days of Minolta. It is very lightweight, of a plastic barrel construction. It also has a plastic Mount - which is often criticized as 'not being as strong' as its predecessor metal mounts, but I haven't had a problem with them. The Optics are good, as we all expect from Minolta......except for one little detail. This lens (and its 28-100 cousin), when used on Film cameras, have a problem with vignetting (shadowing) of the corners at 28mm. From about 35mm on up, this problem disappears. If using it on the Sony Alpha 100 (or a Minolta 5D or 7D), this problem shouldn't show itself, thanks to the '1.5x crop factor' (the Digital uses a smaller portion of the lens's 'image circle' than a film camera would).

Great replacement lens! Exceptional value for the money.
This was a great pick-up for the money. I had an accident with my Sony Alpha lens that was going to cost about $150 to fix. While this doesn't have the same range, it was a no brainer replacement at less than $50. Works great with the camera.

Good for what it is.
This has proven to be a very good workhorse lens for the maxxum camera. It does exaclty what it should do. I find that I use this lens a bit more often than my 70-300 mm lens because most of my shooting is closer in. Not good for long distance shots, but takes a decent panorama landscape. all around a good lens for the money.
