Thanks for this! The Minolta 200/2,8 certainly looks good and the hood is neat (the 300/2,8 is an unwieldy monster in comparison). How's the autofocus with the LA-EA4r? Fast,violent, accurate? How's the Canon on the MC11 in comparison?

The Canon focuses much more quickly. The modified LA-EA4 is pretty slow and unreliable but eventually it works. I am sure the Minolta would focus better on the LA-EA5. A better aligned copy would probably focus better too. AF-S with the LA-EA4r did look the same as my careful manual focusing. The Minolta has more focus shift. Stopped down focusing would be nice to have for A-mount.
