Pros: Optically excellent, compact and lightweight compared to today's versions, AF very fast. Excellent construction

Cons: Non-removable tripod ring. Not flawless in tracking. Minimum focus distance 1.8m

Opinion: Exceptional optics, a real Minolta G (one of only three Minolta zoom lenses to boast the G brand). Very sharp at full opening, it becomes devastating already at f/4. Some AC remaining especially at 2.8 (it was designed for film). Amazing when you think that the optical project is from 1987 (black version). Compactness and lightness unattainable from the modern 70-200/2.8... HS version (Biancone) very fast in focus, although the accuracy in tracking does not reach the level of the Sony SSM. Spectacular mechanics... the zoom dial seems suspended on an air cushion. Metal construction, the only defect the white paint that tends to browse on practically all specimens. Finally... aesthetically it's the finest lens ever!

Pros: I own the version marked "G" which arrived on the same goal, a year later. Excellent at all openings in perfect f4, fast enough, it seems the cannon of the Tiger tank.

Cons: Only the weight and the fact that the tripod socket too close to the lens barrel does not allow to use the protective socks (the mimetic to understand).

Opinion: Bought as a joke, found in excellent condition, I gave back a Sony 70-300mm f / 4.5-5.6 G SSM, and I took this (almost at the same price) at the same time the acquisition of Minolta SLR Autofocus AF500. I gained a lot in brightness and also a lot in defining (the SSM 220 to 300 was so-so), I lost in length, but with the AF500 I solved. Fully open is definitely acceptable at all focal lengths, of course it is great to f4, and f8 in a Katana, I think it's the best you could wish for, definitely like the Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR (which costs 2 times much), even to put near the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 (a paperweight) .rnConsigliato those who do not want to spend so much exaggeration but still claims, the only problem ... in trovarlo.rn
