"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

Never realized it until I started buying used Minolta lenses.Colors are sharp and true, nice macro function. Sony users I would recommend getting this gem. 0, May 3, 2015

This review is from: Minolta 70-210mm AF Zoom Lens for Maxxum 9 SLR, f/4.5-5.6 (Electronics) I still enjoy shooting film and wanted this lens for my Minolta 35mm camera. The price was right and I took a chance. I am very pleased. My photos were crisp and the lens didn't have a soft spot. Tho only negative aspect was there were a couple of bar code labels on it that I couldn't remove completely and I did not want to use any cleaning solvents fearing they may damage the lens 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 11, 2014

    0 5/5 benboise - See all my reviews This review is from: Minolta 28mm-105 F3.5-4.5 Maxxum Zoom Lens for Minolta-AF Camera (Electronics) One Lucky Buy!I bought this on an eBay "BIN" or "Make Offer". I made an offer some 20% below asking price and- Surprise!- Won It! ($110) I usually shoot a Sony a700, with Sony's 18-200mm 3.5 as my everyday favorite. I thought this lens was the perfect answer for a 1 lens carry. And it pretty much was, except for its tendency to deliever "over soft" images. Soft is great for weddings- and I've shot weddings using this lens only, with no regrets- or other romantic themed settings, but not for everyday satisfaction.When this (28-105mm xi, the power zoom version) arrived I snapped it in and began shooting. Wow! Every Shot was sharper than my "better" images from the longer, wider Sony. Every shot! It gives back very acceptable, flash-lit, indoors photos, too. Get the flash setting down and wow yourself! And speaking only of the power zoom (xi) feature, it works on all Sony alphas.

    AF Minolta Lenses May Be Directly Mounted On SONY Alpha A-mount Cameras

    0 5/5 G. Santavenere "CanonFL" (Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Konica Minolta Autofocus 20mm f/2.8 Lens for Maxxum SLR Cameras (Electronics) All Minolta Auto Focus Maxxum lenses may be directly mounted on SONY Alpha A-mount cameras such as the Full Frame a900 and a99 Digital Cameras, as well as, APS-C Digital Cameras including the a77 and others. Since Sony A-Mount Digital Cameras provide SteadyShot, the feature may be used with all earlier Minolta AF Maxxum Lenses.Extremely rare to find a brand new (new old stock) Minolta 20mm f/2.8 lens, which I believe is the world's very first Auto Focus, Ultra Wide Angle Lens. Takes incredibly sharp pics I am unable to improve with software. Brilliant colors. Search the Web for Professional reviews and Photos. I do not believe any company has been able to improve on the optics of this lens.The Amazon.com Heading for this product should also contain the name Sony, as SONY purchased Konica Minolta in 2006, and as stated earlier, Minolta Maxxum lenses may be directly mounted on Sony alpha A-mount cameras. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 23, 2014

    Minolta Maxxum AF 135mm F/2.8 Prime Lens for Sony Alpha and Minolta A-Mount

    Excellent prime lens

    My 135mm f/2.8 arrived promptly and was in excellent (beautiful even) condition. It focuses very rapidly even in poor light, near instant. I tested it indoors for center sharpness using a tripod and flash, focusing manually with the camera's focus assist. **Very** sharp lens. Using autofocus, it seemed to focus a little beyond where it was pointed. I believe this is correctable via camera body settings and will edit this review after (a) shooting it outdoors in strong lighting and (b) fooling with camera adjustments. EDIT 2014-01-23. Using my newly arrived A99 (full frame sensor) I tested this 135/2.8 lens all over again. All photos are shot with flash and a tripod, at f/2.8. Test setup: 4 LaCrosse BC700 boxes about 12 feet from the lens front element, at lens height, at right angles to the camera, edge on, with the "Features" side (lots of ~10 pitch print, good contrast) toward the camera, with the two center boxes pushed together (this is the surface on which I focus).
