Minolta AF 70-210mm F4 (beercan) A-mount lens review by Dan Berke

flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 100-200 f4.5|
|negative:||Small manual focus and rotating front element|
|comment:||I think I have struck gold and bought a perfect copy. It is razor sharp wide open and at all apertures and focal lengths. The colours are stunning and the bokeh is a dream. It balances well on my A77.|
I compared this to the Minolta 100-200 f4.5 as it is the closest comparitor. The 100-200 left my A77 feeling off balance, had a poor MFD and simply I need to fall in love with a lens to keep it. The 100-200 was a one night stand but the beercan is full blown affair. Yes f4 is a bit slow and it is a little heavy but so am I....
