MINOLTA V LENS 25-150mm f/4-6.3. Turns out to be my least favourite Vectis lens. Auto focus on the LA-VE2 is rubbish at 25 mm and non-existent above. As this lens does not have manual focus, it is hardly useable. I tried AF-S and AF-C, flexible spot and wide, nothing good to report.



When I first got the adapter , I had a few issues with some lenses .
It turned out if you mount the adapter and lens on the camera and go into the menu settings and select " initialise" , it made big improvements.
But still the 25-150mm isn't as good to use as any of the other lenses .
Shame really .

One good thing about the 25-150 is that the lens hood fits and works for the A mount AF24 lens..

Between that ,and the front and rear caps , if you pick a complete one up , it's cheaper than buying an individual front and rear cap .
