Minolta 100 to 300 af zoom lens

I have just purchased one of these s/h but looking at the reviews all I can find are references to an APO version or a D APO version and mine does not carry either APO or D APO markings.

Like this one? http://www.dyxum.com/lenses/detail.asp?IDLens=61 Dyxum has an excellent database for Minolta lenses. If it's not the one I gave you the link to it'll be one of the `related lenses' at the bottom.

Thanks, it appears to be the early (non APO) version. seems to give reasonable results at f8 on a Sony a33 so as expected.

Thank You

Quite a lot of these lenses about in places like CEX often at prices as low as 29.99, recently bought one for a friend to use on her a65.
