I am fortunate enough to own the older Minolta 300mm 2.8, and for many years it has remained one of my favorite lens. It is truly one of the sharpest lens ever produced by any maker. While the new Sony version looks good, the price seems extremely high for a 300mm. My personal advice is to  begin a search for the older Minolta model. It can be had for 2000 - 3500, depending upon condition, and no one is ever going to be disappointed by the results.
