foto43: Is it just me or does anyone else think it looks something made up from a Canon parts bin?
Without the badges - and the mounting changed - it would not look out of place on a Canon pro dealers shelf. Surely it must be running copyrights very close? Or perhaps it is licenced from Canon?

It's not the paint - it's the parts. The switches on the barrel; the glass over the distance scale; the front buttons, etc all look so close as to be inter-changeable with the ones on my L lenses. And yes they have been like that since the Minolta days.
