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.
