Minolta AF 400mm F4.5 HS APO G A-mount lens review by horizon
|horizon#8167 date: Nov-2-2010
flare control: 5
|I own this lens
|Sony 70200 F2.8G
|2750 USD (Used)
focusing AF / MF accurate
Manual focus hold buttons
Manual focus shield
Large Metal Hood
Padded Metal carry case
|Can become a bit weighty after sometime, recommend tripod / monopod
Drop in filters can be hard to find
Could do with another focus hold button on underside of lens for easier focus hold
|When I purchased this lens no drop in filters came with it, due to the rarity of these filters, I purchased an adaptor ring to suit the set of Lee filters I have.
Manual focus by minor rotation of the focus ring is required to alter the focus
Apeture lock is really not required, unless you require constant apeture and wish to prevent accidental change, this is a feature probably rarely used.
Focus hold in AF 2 buttons located at 90° on top of the lens
Highly recommend this lens. Also recommend storing with silicagel packs in the case.
