Minolta AF 80-200mm F2.8 APO A-mount lens review by fabiox6
|fabiox6#8655 date: Feb-13-2011|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 300f/4 APO|
Minolta 28-70 G
Not a real comparison ( those are the other lens I own )
|price paid:||1050 US (1992! )|
Compact ( for the kind of lens )
|comment:||I bought this lens in 1992. |
At that time it was big heavy and I had the feeling to be easy noticed.
For a longtime it was my workhorse lens together with a 24 and a 50 mm
Now it seems far more "normal" than new white versions or new Sony 70-200.
I use it with my A850 + VG and it ends in a compact and solid combo. I did never thought to upgrade it with a newer version as its quality is still outstanding.
( The only lens sometimes I take into consideration as an alternative is the CZ 135 but in the end I think that a zoom it is more useful for my needs )
