"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, ...

    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

    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.

An STi and a QTi. I broke the lens on the first and bought the second because it cost almost as much to buy a replacement lens as it did to just buy a new camera. At this price, I can replace the original lens and have two cameras.I love this camera. I've used several 35mm manual and automatic cameras and find this one easy to use and have gotten consistently good quality photos from it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 10, 2001
