"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, ...

    Super Lens at a Super Price

    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

    Only sony alpha-EOS that I know of

    Great product. Fits perfect. I own a Canon T3 (not the T3i). It does not link up the electrically components of the lens if anyone is wondering, so the auto-focus will not work. A word of warning sometimes when you use alpha lens if the auto-focus is on then you will have to mount it on something that can turn it off in order to use manual. For people who are new to adapters, it will crop your lens and magnify, on avg most adapters magnify by .4X so for ex. if you have a 50mm it will be equal to about a 70mm. The adapter is a little long, it's about 1/2-1''~~UPDATED REVIEW~~ I'm not changing the 4stars because it I base my stars on what the product say it will do and it does its job fine.Key factors why you should not.1. There's an optical pieces - adding a 'zoom'(1.4x), degrades picture quality, theres a max aperture(probably around a 1.4).2.

    Looked promising but ultimately disappointing!

    After reading the good reviews on this product, I ordered with confidence. When I received the product, I was delighted that it fit my 7D body very snugly as did all my Maxxum A-mount lenses. This was encouraging. It also had a nice aperture ring that reminded me of the old days of using manual SLR's and their lenses. So far so good. The lenses even unscrewed from the adapter nicely and there was no play in the fitting.However, the problem arose when I started shooting with it. All the images shot with my A-mount lenses connected w/ this adapter were super soft, blurry, foggy, and any lights in the scene would bloom into a blobby mess. Forget about nice crisp bokehs and stars. Also images were murky and darker than what the meter is indicating. In short, the images I got using this adapter were a big disappointment and basically unusable. I did some research and found that many have had the same issue w/ Fotodiox Pro adapters, albeit for other mounts like MD for... 2/5 S.Chen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

I was sceptical at first, however after seeing the beautiful pictures that resulted was amazing. No fisheye effects, cloudiness or anything that is possible to result from usuing and adapter such as this. Works wonderfully. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 25, 2013

    The only 500mm reflex lens for the Sony system

    After Sony bought Minolta they continued to make this lens until around 2010. It's unfortunate Sony dropped this lens from its line-up because I surely would have bought a new copy over a used one. In fact, since this lens is unique in being the only autofocus 500mm reflex ever made, I could see people buying the Sony platform simply for this lens! The alternative is cheap manual t-mount lens, more expensive and heavier off-brand zooms (e.g., Sigma), or outrageously priced Sony (or Nikon/Canon/etc.) prime lenses priced like a good used car. Minolta lenses work fine on Sony cameras like my a65. My experience is you'll get a far better price on the older Minolta version than the Sony one but your mileage may vary.So how is the lens? I hope to upload some test shots I took at the zoo (like I did for my Sony 75-300mm). The take-away is I'm pretty confident anybody in the market for a 500mm reflex lens will absolutely fall in love with it! I was able to hand hold it at the zoo... 5/5 Thomas C.

    Good lens and good vendor

    I ordered this lens from "The Camera Broker" through Amazon. It was represented as "Used-Like New" and it is. All the parts such as case, two filters, and two lens caps were there and in like-new condition as was the lens. I got it on the sixth day of the order and would likely have had it sooner had I not ordered it on a Friday. I was also issued a tracking number to follow it en route.There are many articles and discussions about mirror lenses, and this model in particular, so I will not go over all that again hereother than to say that this is a very special lens and you should know the pluses and minuses before purchasing. Using it on a Sony Alpha 55, I find it to focus quickly and accurately and to produce sharp pictures when used on a monopod. A tripod would likely provide even more stability but at the cost of less mobility. All mirror lenses will produce the small donuts from busy backgrounds so watch your framing, unless you like the look... 5/5 RONWA - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
