Samples: Minolta Vectis 80-240mm f/4.5-5.6 APO


mount: Minolta Vectis V
format: APS-H
year: 1996
max aperture: f/4.5 (f/5.6 from 120mm)
min aperture: f/32 (f/38 from 110mm)
elements/group: 11/9
aperture blades: 7
min focus distance (mm): 1200 / 3.9ft
filter diameter (mm): 46
length (mm): 90
weight (g): 250

additional information:
Made for the Minolta Vectis S-1 and S-100 APS film SLR's and the Minolta DiMage RD-3000 DSLR it compares to 100-300mm in 35 mm format.
Being an all electronic lens both for aperture control and focus ( even manual focus is focus by wire ) it is only fully compatible with those three cameras.

The only way of using the Vectis lenses on modern digital cameras is via the Monster adapter. It supplies power to focus manually, but does not support auto focus.
It does also allow you to control the aperture via the camera.
Although the adapter reports itself as a 24-70mm lens, the correct and current focal length is reported to image stabilisation works correctly on applicable bodies.



This thread is open for C&C and for posting additional pictures. Please ONLY post pictures taken with the lens in the title- or start a new thread.
Please state camera, version of the lens and adapter in your post!

Sample shots taken with the 80-240mm APO lens .
The camera used was a Sony a7Riv , all images were taken on the full sensor and have not been cropped to demonstrate coverage .
There is some vignetting at all focal lengths and a little smearing .

A little cropping in PP would be required as the smearing prevents correction , not really an issue .

Clicking on the image will take you to a full size image on Flickr .
