Minolta AF 300mm F4 HS APO G A-mount lens review by ab012
|ab012#1634 date: Jan-11-2007|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I used to own this lens|
|compared to:||400G, 100-300APO, 70-200SSM|
|positive:||Sharp, sharp with TC.|
Good handholding lens
AF fast enough
|comment:||Suprisingly very sharp (much better than what i expected from photodo numbers) wide open. I would put it at 4.75 sharpness compared to the superb 400G. Nevertheless I am extremely impressed with its sharpness.|
Also works very well with Minolta 1.4x TC. Again very, very satisfactory results from wide open. The only drawback is a bigger probability of PF.
I like the colours and contrast of this lens a fair bit - and is one of the main difference I see over the 100-300APO..
AF is fast enough (and faster than 400G).
Good handholding lens IMO - nice tradeoff of weight (+quality) vs focal length.
