Minolta AF 100-300mm xi f/4.5-5.6

(3 customer reviews)

This camera glass has a long focal length range from 100mm to 300mm, which is suitable for capturing distant subjects such as wildlife or sports events. The photo lens has multiple lens elements, which helps to reduce chromatic aberration and produce sharp images. The lens coating is designed to minimize flare and ghosting, which can occur when shooting against bright light sources.

The build quality of this photographic lens is decent, but it may not be as durable as some of the alternatives available in the market. The autofocus system is fast and accurate, which makes it easier to capture moving subjects. However, if you prefer manual focus, you can switch to manual mode easily.

The aperture of this glass ranges from f/4.5 to f/5.6, which means that it may not perform well in low light conditions. The bokeh, or the quality of out-of-focus areas, is decent but not exceptional. This lens was manufactured some time ago, so it may not be as readily available as newer models.

Overall, this camera lens is a decent choice for those who need a telephoto zoom lens for their full frame camera. It has good optics and autofocus capabilities, but may not be the best option for low light situations.
