Twigs Test – Take 7

Day five of the twigs test, today’s lens is my Maxxum (Minolta) AF 75-300mm F/4.5-5.6 (Big Beercan). Originally produced by Minolta (1986), and currently produced by Sony, the AF 75-300mm F4.5-5.6, is a telephoto zoom photographic lens. The first generation body is made of metal. There is a focus limiter switch to speed up focusing. The lens and the Minolta AF 70-210mm f/4 lens are known as the “Big Beercan” and “Beercan” because their lens shape and size closely match the proportions of a typical aluminum beercan.

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 the last two photos @ FL (250 & 300mm FF) are photos of the Y-branch for comparison to the earlier sets.

All photos were taken with my Sony SLT α65 and Minolta AF 75-300mm F/4.5-5.6 (Big Beercan) lens, at 112mm (75mm FF), 150mm (100mm FF), 202mm (135mm FF), 300mm (200mm FF), 375mm (250mm FF) & 450mm (300mm FF), using Aperture mode, with a setting of f/16, White Balance set to cloudy, ISO to 800.
