Twigs Test – Take 6

Day five of the twigs test, today’s lens is my Minolta AF 70-210mm F/4 (Beercan). The lens is colloquially knows as the “beercan”.

It was introduced in 1985, however, production slowed and then eventually stopped; its successors, the Sony 70-210mm f/3.5-4.5 and Sony 70-210mm f/4.5-5.6 had none of the qualities of the original and build and image quality decreased.

This set was taken from the same location focusing on the twigs to the left of the Y-branch used for takes 1-4. In addition for the last two FL (125 & 210mm FF) there are additional photos of the Y-branch [#4 & #6].

All photos were taken with my Sony SLT α77 and Minolta AF 70-210mm F/4 (Beercan) lens, at 105mm (70mm FF), 150mm (100mm FF), 202mm (135mm FF) & 315mm (210mm FF), using Aperture mode, with a setting of f/8 and f/16, White Balance set to cloudy, ISO to 400.
