I suppose it has OSS but still...

Performance on film versus performance on digital. Changes a lot...

perhaps it does but not sure about the amount by which it does

The old (1987) Canon EF 135 f2.8 Soft focus lens was even smaller than the Minolta one, with 52mm filter diameter.

IIRC canon is longer and slightly heaver than minolta despite having a smaller filter thread.

actually my MF Leica APO Telyt-M is smaller, lighter and is optically outstanding with perfectly round shaped Bokeh Balls and very presice focussing.

It only lacks Full EXIF Data.

Ah - and it is shorter and 40 mm thinner in diameter and has 49 mm Filter thread

And it is used in mint condition cheaper.

IS works fine together with my A7RM2
