Minolta 20mm f/2.8 AF Lens Review

A 20mm lens is considered a wide angle and this is true for a full frame camera. Added to an APS-C camera and this becomes roughly a 30mm field of view and less wide, but not yet standard. This Minolta 20mm f/2.8 was made for the film era and we will look and see if it can still be a contender in the digital world!
