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.

Day five of the twigs test, today’s lens is my Sony 55-200mm F/4-5.6 SAM (SAL-55200-2). The lens makes a good companion to the Sony DT 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 (SAL-1855) “kit” lens offered by Sony.
