Beercan - Diagnose problem #2
Nov 20, 2012

My Minolta 70-210 seems to be a hot mess.  I've already received help figuring out it has a sticky aperture.  Problem not solved, other than to shoot close to wide open, at least until I decide what to do (fortunately soccer season is over).

Next problem.  At short focal lengths (below ~135) pictures are sharp.  When I get out to higher lengths, particularly at 210, I get results as below.  A lot of blur, which isn't motion blur (shutter speed 1/1250 in this example, and I get it with even higher shutter speeds too).

Ideas?
