Look at the Sigma on this site and then connect to the DustinAbbott review it references. He is very impressed with the lens. I would not even consider the Minolta because of its purple fringe (I have owned/used the 300 f/2.8, 400 and 600 primes). I own the SAL70400 and it is much more versatile than a 300. The main con is that it starts off with f/6.3 @ 235mm.

Now that the Sigma 100-400mm for E mount has been out for a few days (ha ha)... does anyone have any idea how it compares at the long end to the Minolta 300mm f4 G?

Looks to be much better with CA and focuses pretty quickly (despite narrower apertures). Wondering how it stacks up on the sharpness front.
a77ii- and some Sony/Minolta A-mount lenses.
a7riii- Zeiss Loxia 21mm, Loxia 35mm Loxia 50mm, Loxia 85mm, Voightlander 110mm Macro, Sony 24-105mm, Sigma 100-400mm.
