Minolta 200mm/2.8 'HS' test drive
4 months ago

I am posting this here as its more to with the lens than the body it was used on.

This is sure an amazing lens I picked up yesterday. It is cosmetically in a slightly bad shape but optically and mechanically superb. It focusses very fast ('HS' does make a difference I guess) and tracking is good too (I don't have any BIF to show as I forgot to insert my SD card lol).

I wonder if anyone has used this lens with the sony 1.4x TC? if so what are your findings?

Here's some pics from the test run today (all crops):
