Re: Torn between Min 500mm Reflex and Min 100-400mm APO

I've had the reflex for almost 2 years. Was happy about it, made some great shots of birds (see my gallery). But then i replaced it by the Minolta 400/4.5 and it was quite a bit sharper. Now I have the Tamron 200-500 and this is also sharper. Big advantage for the reflex is there's absolutely no CA, the Tamron has some CA. And the reflex is very compact, making it easy for birds in flight.

I would skip the reflex and go for the Minolta.
