In a word, yes. This is an excellent lens. Although the 24-50mm f4 is not as widely known as other great classic Minolta lenses, it is of the same class with many similar characteristics. By modern standards the focal length range may seem limiting -- and it is compared to your $52 Sigron-super 14-650mm f8-11, but it makes up for it with solid build, lovely colors and overall image quality.
See the 24-50mm f4 page for more details.
If you can find one, it is worth consideration. In all seriousness you may not find the range wide and long enough, or you might not consider f4 fast enough but it is alens with its charms.
