compared to:Big Beercan (Minolta AF 70-210 F 4)
Sigma - 75-300 F4.5-5.6 APO
Minolta AF 75-300 4.5-5.6 Macro
price paid:10 USD(Fleet market)
positive:- Sturdy build
- Nice colors
- Decent sharpness
negative:- Odd zoom
comment:I seldom use this lens, however that may simply be because I both have the big beer can and my favorite sigma tele. This is sort of the odd fella in the lens family and spend most of its time at home due to the lack of macro and lesser zoom range than my other telies...
