Here’s a special post for one of my lens.

It’s the Minolta 28mm f/2.8, sadly it’s not with me anymore.
You will be able to know why if you follow my twitter! Haha.

Anyway, this is a very good and affordable Prime lens for the Sony Alpha/Konica Minolta mount. It has decent bokeh, and the sharpness is as good as most of the other prime lens out there.

What is so good about this lens is, the range.!
With 28mm, you do not have to lean yourself backwards during a photo session with your friends dining on a normal restaurant table. Unlike the 50mm, the most you can fit with a very tight crop is 2 people in a frame and of course you'll have to lean backwards until your chair stretches to the maximum.

That’s one of the main factor why we uses the 28mm.
Apart from that the minimum focus distance is also shorter hence you can go nearer to the object.
