Re: Just got a Minolta f8 500mm reflex, and...

I do love this lens. In fact, it was this lens that convinced me to go with the minolta 7d system. I still love using it to this day with the A99 and A99ii. However, the IQ (and bokeh!) from the 70-400 is considerably better.  The lens is capable of very creamy bokeh if there are no high contrasts in the background. The lens is super light and the AF is very fast. BIF are a hoot with it.
