I tried my new Minolta MC 300/5.6 for the first time, my observations:


  • contrast ist pretty low
  • ...as ist microcontrast
  • significant PF
  • 300mm are pretty hard to handhold

    After some PP i like the results, nice zoo-tele.
    My Ai-S nonED Nikkor 300/4.5 has better contrast and less PF but it is more unwieldily.




    After trying Minolta 300/5.6 and 300/4.5 on the NEX5N I gave up.Nikon 300/4.5 is better of the two,but despite one ED lens it is still too soft wo and has too much CAs either.Rule of the thumb after a few years of experience:majority of legacy lenses above 28mm and under 200mm can not match contempoprary digital sensors.Without significant amount of PP their images are technically inferior compared to contemporary lenses.
