Minolta AF 300mm f/2.8 APO Does Liverpool Airport



Firstly, this is the first proper little test shoot I've done with this lens on my Sony A700 and took a trip over to Liverpool 'John Lennon' Airport (LPL).

Secondly, none of these images have been sharpened etc, only basic RAW to TIF to JPG and re-sizing.

Thirdly, I know these aren't perfect in terms of framing, but it's a whole new ballgame using a tele/prime as opposed to a tele/zoom.

I'm gobsmacked with the IQ of this lens. If you want it, who's got £1500.00 :devil:

Standing at the back of Speke Hall for these ? :)
Web size looks good would be intrested in how the AF works and a full size showing defail in focus in the center and corners and strong contrast areas.

Would love a 300/2.8 and obviosult it aint gona be a canon on!
