One I Just Had to Have

In my old Minolta MC/MD days, I had the Minolta incarnation of this lens and loved it. Granted in many ways it's a creative toy sort of lens, but I still find myself using it even at inappropriate times ("Hang on. Just let me grab a quick shot of this with the 16."). Every exposure has the potential to be a visual adventure waiting to happen and bring a smile to someones face.
Worth the money.

I use this lens with my A900 and it works perfectly. Fantastic shots possilbe. Rapid focus. Decent corner quality. Very hard not to get your fingers and feet into the picture. Hilareous close ups. Once you've run the image through curvature correction you'll see how great it is to have. Makes interiors look huge, would be great for real estate sales. Perfect lens for when you can't get far enough away, like in a car or small room. Also very lightweight, easy to carry in your bag. I recommend it if you can afford it.
Good Wide Angle

This lens is expensive, but, is well worth the price. I bought it for my A380, but have also used it on my old A100. Images come out crisp, but, i've noticed a few shots that should have been in focus, but were not. Otherwise, this is a solid piece of glass to purchase for yourself!
