"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, ...

    Beware of getting the wrong lens!!!

    I supposedly bought a Minolta 28mm f/2 lens from "Fab Items." I paid $465 -- a good price for a professional level lens that goes for $450-600+ these days. But I was sent a Minolta 28mm f2.8 lens -- an inexpensive consumer lens that can be bought for $90-120 at [...] or on ebay. I had to file a claim with Amazon.com and got a refund 2 weeks later.Note: one of the current sellers is offering the f/2.8 under the banner of the f/2 -- and is charging $320. As noted above, you can buy an f2.8 for about $100 at keh.com, with a 14 day unconditional return guarantee and a 60-day warranty.If you're not familiar with the difference between those two lenses, visit these two links:[...]Both are nice lenses, but the f/2 (also written f/2.0 -- instead of f/2.8) is a classic, and one of the best lenses Minolta ever made.

    Beware - This is an MD Lens, not a Maxxum AF.

    0 2/5 joey - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Minolta Maxxum Dynax AF 28mm 1:2 28 F2 lens fits all Minolta Maxxum/Dynax AF SLR/DLR cameras and Sony Alpha A-Mount DSLR/DSLT cameras (Electronics) I read the first review here and understood that what I was purchasing was indeed a 28mm Minolta Lens 2.8--instead of a 28mm 2.0. However, what I was unaware was that the lense I actually got was a Minolta 28mm 2.8 MD lens--not a Maxxum AF. So, I will be returning this as it was not what was displayed here on amazon. It's a nice lens, but MD lenses don't attach to a Sony Alpha body without an adapter. This is an MD lens, not a Maxxum AF.I was also frustrated that the photos were all from a different lens. So, beware--the photos here on this item are not what you will be ordering. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 2, 2013

    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.

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.

They were great to work with, and I now have a 900mm lens! Woot! Otherwise, I'd have had a very expensive paper weight, since I didn't use my minolta 8000i any more. Now I can use my 600mm lens with my canon slr, and it converts to a 900mm lens, because of the digital conversion! Yay!

    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 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

    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.
