|comment:||This is a great lens. Compact, light and fast focusing on all of the film and digital cameras that I have. Focusing is very accurate = more keeps. Very sharp lens even wide open. Stop it down to f/5.6 or f/8 and it's tack sharp. Great focus limiter which helps this lens focus even faster. Has a built in hood so you'll never loose it. Works very well with 1.4x and 2.0x Min TC and retain AF with both TC's. It has the normal "Minolta colors" which I find to be more pleasing then the colors of the CZ 135 but about the same as the Min 70-200 SSM.|
This is a great complement to my Min 300 f/4 and Min 400 f/4.5 lenses.
This is a keeper, one lens I will never get part with.
