Well my Minolta 400 APO returned from Sanford Camera Repair...they said it is up to spec. Good news I suppose for a lens bought used off of e-bay and manufactured in 1995

Going to your flickr stream greatly improves the shot...I wonder why FM makes it look so poor? If you stop down, does the 400 improve? I agree that your copy is not optimum.

Mogul,
Same day, same conditions but with the 1st Gen Tamron 150-600 on the a99ii Distance to bird approx 25 feet-

Might even be the same bird, we have 6 Cardinals living out back and I can't tell them apart

TAMRON SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di USD A011S
/13.0 500.0 mm 1/1250 1250 Flash (off, did not fire)

I think you'd agree that my Tamron beats the Minolta handily. The Tamron, my copy, even gives my 70-400Gii a run for the money.

I've had the same experiece with my A99ii & Tamron 150-600...so the 400 4.5 went back to KEH, and I even sold my 70-400 v1, as I found myself wanting the extra reach too often & the weight between them wasn't that much. The fact that I found the Tamron in great shape used for 600 bucks made it even better.

Lot of difference between shooting wide open with the Minolta and f13 with the Tamron...that is why I mentioned stopping down with the Minolta. My only big white Minolta is the 600 and it is sharp at f4.though it exhibits PF like all film era lenses.

I still am a neophyte when it comes to shooting birds. Here was my latest attempt - A99ii crop mode, and then cropped a bit further. I used DXO11 for the noise reduction and lightroom for everything else.

Was shooting with an EOS M5 in the blind and something catches my attention off to the left--the Blues are back
Sadly pretty far away. So pop into crop mode for the effective 900mm using the 1st gen Tam 150-600 at 600-

Twice this week. Again walking up the hill to feed the hawks and yet another (possibly same??) Bluebird presents. Looks like they are studying the backyard for nesting my guess-
