I will echo many of the other opinions here as well. One of my main lenses on my F4 and my F100 was the 28-105mm.
It's compactness, common (at the time) 62mm filter size, and range made it a very desirable lens. I've read that's it's the "Swiss Army Knife" of lenses... and with it's 1:2 Macro, it's easy to see why.
The only knock against this lens is the hood, which more resembles a Sombrero more than something you would attach to a camera
I have hundreds of slides that were shot with this lens. All are crisp and clear with good colour and contrast. You can't go wrong, and should be able to find one reasonably cheap these days.
