Yeah, but Tokina bought their 28-70 design from Angénieux.

Ok. The Angénieux was reported to me by it's owner as a 2.6 constant but in fact it is not. I update my list.

The original Angénieux version I am aware of has had, in fact, a 2.6 non-floating aperture. The later Tokina version, although based on the Angénieux, is not identical optically and features a 2.6-2.8 floating aperture.

Here is a description of the fixed 2.6 zoom, I saved from an old eBay-auction (author unknown):

It is constructed of 16 elements in 14 groups, close focus 0.65m, 8 aperture blades. Very wide focusing ring (nice for manual focus), Filter size 77mm, non rotating.
The outer barrel is designed to give the lens a constant length, to feature a square-shaped baffle for flare reduction, and to act like a lens hood at longer focal lengths.

Greetings,

Matthias

Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I found this thread when I was surfing the net looking for up-to-date Minolta LensID information. I'm the author of the Image::ExifTool utility.

Question: Is there a master list of Minolta LensID codes kept anywhere? There are a number of codes mentioned casually in this thread that are new to me. Dalibor, you mention that you have been collecting a list. Is it posted anywhere? (BTW, sorry for using the same name as your old 'exiftool' utility, I didn't discover this utility until after I had already published mine.)

I would like to update my tool with as current information as possible.

Thanks in advance.

- Phil Harvey

Hi Kiklop. Thanks. That Sony file was very useful.

But people have mentioned a few additional lenses which aren't in that list, so I wanted to update my Minolta support to be as current as possible before the next ExifTool release.

Currently i guess the list that matthiaspaul gave us in a previous post may be the most accurate.
I hope we will all contribute to a reliable and updated list and my following post is my effort to make this job a bit easier.

I have spent a bit of my time to contribute to this discussion by making the list a bit easier for sharings.


On this page (link removed) EVERYONE is able to edit both product codes and maker note IDs for all lenses in our lens database.

I hope no one will abuse this (by entering wrong data) and that this can actually help all participants in this duscussion.



(i didn't have the time to enter IDs mentioned in this post but if nobody will do it before me i will try to submit these ASAP)



All suggestions are welcome.



Update:

as asked by one dyxum member i have added a simple list ((link removed))of lenses with ID entered.

I have added the Minolta 400/4.5 APO G lens id and asked the product code to our member who owe it.

I've filled in all of the lens ID's as best I can. Many are ambiguous (mainly different lens versions since any lists I've found don't specify [RS], etc, although some do specify 'new" -- how does this relate to [RS]?).
