Minolta AF 200mm F2.8 APO A-mount lens review by seagr112

flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|price paid:||800 USD|
|negative:||Hood should lock in the retracted position but doesn't.|
|comment:||It's all been said before my review. This one and the updated HS are Minolta classics and best in class. What I like best besides the IQ is that it is a much lighter lens than the 80-200 G. IQ is still superb with the 1.4x APO TC and this is a potent little pair when combined.|
Focus is fast enough - not quite as torquey as the HS lenses, but no slouch. If it's small that you want, or you can't stomach the price of the 80-200 or SSM, then this is the go to 200mm lens for you.
