"Only the human eye focuses faster than the Maxxum," claims Minolta. Well, possibly. It certainly is fast. My own experience lends credence to Minolta's figures: 0.35 second for 24- and 28-mm lenses, 0.60 sec. for 50-mm lenses, ...

    Better than expected

    0 5/5 mrxray - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Minolta Maxxum AF 35-70mm f/4 for Minolta Maxxum Dynax SLR/DSLR cameras and Sony Alpha A-mount DSLR cameras (Electronics) The Minolta AF 35-70 /f4 is as sharp as a tack. Sharpness holds from one end of the zoom range to the other. Colors are true with only minor color fringing at the edges at f4. You have to do a 100% crop to see the finging. The focal range is perfect for around the house shooting the kids or pets.A great product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 7, 2012

    0 5/5 slant6guy "slant6guy" (Alaska) - See all my reviews This review is from: Minolta AF 50mm F1.7 RS Lens for Sony/Minolta (Electronics) This little 50mm f1.7 lens is very good for the price it's sold at. Granted, you get what you pay for, but what you get is a very fast lens w/ good bokeh. The built-in hood is a joke and there's no f-scale, but a good shootist can still get very memorable photos with this lens. If these items are a nuisance, then go get a good B&W metal hood and one of their excellent slim line UV haze filters and learn to judge distance. It's a good portrait lens on the 7D. BTW, to those who don't know, this lens is an auto-focus lens, hence MAXXUM. Maxxum means auto-focus. Getting this lens won't disappoint you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 28, 2008

    Great value with few drawbacks

    I bought this lens for my Minolta Maxxum 5 SLR three years ago. I have taken it on trips and shot hundreds of photos with it and not had any regrets. It is not too heavy, it fits into a hip pack just right and the focal range is fantastic. Compared with lenses that costs hundreds of dollars more it is an incredible bargain. If you are just a point and shooter like me, and want life taking pix to be easy, then this is a great lens. I recently bought a K-M Maxxum 5 D-SLR (no longer made but still around if you look) and the 'A-mount' takes this lens just fine. I am looking forward to seeing how it performs on the new camera. About the only drawback with this lens I can find is that you want to shoot more pix!!Why 4 Stars and not 5? The light weight comes at a cost in materials. It is mostly plastic and just not very solid feeling, albeit I have never worried about it and so far it has given me no reason to have.UPDATE May 2009:Well the lens is still... 4/5 Marco Polo "DIYGUY" (Raleigh, NC) - See all my reviews This review is from: Konica Minolta AF Zoom 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SLR Lens Maxxum SLR Cameras (Electronics) I bought this lens for my Minolta Maxxum 5 SLR three years ago.

    Wonderful smaller tele zoom

    0 5/5 pasquale - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Minolta Maxxum AF 100-200mm f/4.5 TELE lens for Minolta Maxxum Dynax SLR/DSLR cameras and Sony Alpha A-mount DSLR cameras (Electronics) A wonderful, first-class lens, about 1/2 the weight and 1/2 the length of the "beer can" 70-210 f/4, and its equal or near-equal in image quality. I tested it on a Sony A99 (24mp full-frame camera). I found that I run out of pixel before I run out of sharp - my criterion for a sharp lens. Use flash indoors and high shutter speeds outdoors and you'll be happy with how sharp and clear this lens is, with great colors. Use f/8 when you can. This lens is not the full equal of the 70-210 f/4, but it's very close and much smaller and lighter. At today's prices for these lenses you can afford one of each, use this one when weight and size matter. In my testing I didn't notice any defects or shortcomings at all.

    Excellent medium telephoto for the AF mount

    I've had this lens for a couple of years now and am pretty happy with it.The good:Cheap. A good copy can be had under $200.Very well built.Excellent image quality.The famous "Minolta colors".Reasonably fast at f/4.0.Constant f/4.0 throughout range.Length does not change while zooming.Sharp wide open.The bad:It's a 20+ year old lens, hence older technology and older coatings.A bit of CA.No focus limiter.Heavy.AF is slow (but good on the Sony A700).On the whole, this is the only constant f/4 medium telephoto lens in the Sony alpha (Minolta AF) line up. No third party and no Sony equivalent.Great image quality. Nice warm colors. Sharp wide open and great at 5.6 and beyond. Nice heavy feel. Metal body, built to last. Great for portraits and street, sports. Versatile length and good speed.When it misses focus, it needs to zoom in and out and that could take 2-3... 5/5 Sasikanth Malladi (Fairfax, VA, USA) - See all my reviews, May 26, 2010

    0 4/5 Trance Music "Trance Music" (NC, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Minolta Maxxum AF 70-210mm F/4 Telephoto Zoom Lens FOR SONY ALPHA (Electronics) Once i removed the uv-filter that was stuck the lens really delivered. It's amazingly sharp at F4.5 from wide all the way to tele. I love how it looks and feels. It's much sharper than my big beercan which needs to be stopped down to F8 for the same sharpness as F4 on the beercan.If you can get one cheap, its well worth it, better than kit lenses. I would say its sharper than the Mini Beercan but not sharper than the 80-200/2.8HSG. Much sharper than the Sigma 70-300DL macro. Softens a touch as it gets closer to 210mm.Can suffer from a bit of flare and CA with strong lighting, but generally the colours it produces are very good.It seems to be built well and I have found it to be reliable. Highly recommendedpositive:Very sharp from 4.5 ongreat colorgreat bokeh at long endconstant aperturenegative:heavy and tad awkward because of lengthlittle bit slower than prime lens. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 10, 2010

    A cheap but functional lens

    I own a Minolta Maxuum camera, which I love and have carried all over the world. I needed a inexpensive 50 mm lens for the rare occasions that my pocket Canon camera cannot cope with the view I wish to photograph. This lens was a factory reconditioned lens and was extremely cheap, so I did not expect much and certainly the reviews on-line regarding this lens were not encouraging. To my pleasant surprise I found that the lens is indeed very light but also very functional. U also liked the expanded range of the zoom which enables me to take a wider variety of photographs. I am an amateur photographer with 2-3 decades of experience and although this lens may not meet the exacting eye of professional photographers I was extremely pleased with its performance and would highly recommend it to any other person who, like me, owns a Minolta and is looking for a reasonable to excellent closeup zoom lens.
