"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

    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.

    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

    great color - great bokeh - solid build

    0 4/5 Patrick Nguyen "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
