|Minolta AF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 (Minolta/Sony A Mount)|
You know what? Although I have never personally used any Minolta AF lenses, I'm really very impressed by these AF lenses because of their smooth mechanism. They're plastic, but look nowhere as cheap as (sigh, sad to say as a Nikon user) the plastic Nikkor AF lenses of the same era. The mechanism is also very smooth, very stable (again, unlike the Nikkor AF lenses of the same era). Probably the most beautiful AF lenses ever!
Now what I find very peculiar about this Minolta AF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 is that it has a built in shutter that serves as its own lens cap, nice one! They also take in very small 46mm filters. This lens comes in the later Minolta/Sony A mount, which is totally different and incompatible from the earlier Minolta MD mount. So this can be used on any Minolta or Sony cameras with 'A mount'.
