Try Minolta 300mm F4 APO G
In reply to Ulfric M Douglas, Aug 2, 2010

Well I can certainly endorse the Minolta 300mm F4 paired with the A450/550 sensor! The lens is built like a piece of military hardware, the optics are first-rate, the sharpness and detail stunning even wide open at F4. Autofocus is respectably fast and accurate, and you have an infinite focus limiter to choose a variable focus limit on the high or low end, which will really speed up focus when needed.

It's quite razor sharp, and the lovely circular 9-blade aperture makes for lovely bokeh. Considering the build, and being a long prime, the prices aren't unreasonable.
