MPN: 200mm f4.5 MC Tele Rokkor
Lens Aperture: 4.5
Focus Type: Manual
This is a beautiful used Minolta Rokkor-PE 200mm F4.5 lens. This lens
is in amazing condition! Case and all in great shape. The original
case made from Real Leather! YOu can tell the leather ones, they are
older, and are still in descent condition, while the newer cases look
the same, but the plastic has cracked! This lens is in wonderful
cosmetic condition. Look at the photos, hardly any wear can be seen on
this old gem. A long telephoto lens on the Minolta cameras, this is the
lower priced version. Built in Hood, and recessed front element help
protect the front glass from damage. The iris moves freely with no oil
on the blades, Focus is smooth and easy to turn. No fungus, but some
antique dust is present between elements.
I place my Minolta 200
on my Sony NEX. A great little digital camera which makes is a
wonderfully long lens, faster and sharper than the zoom lenses offered
by Sony. Try it on your Olympus or Panasonic 4/3, Sony NEX and other
mirror less cameras with the right adapter (not included or sold with
this auction). Sorry, It will never be an auto-focus lens. even on
newer cameras. The ebay 'product information' is for a newer version,
so it is not quite accurate for this version which they didn't have
Since I found a bunch of 200mm lenses all at once, I had a fun
opportunity to compare several of Minolta's offerings from 200/3.5 in
the SR mount, 200/3.5 MC metal focus ring, 200/3.5 rubber focus ring,
200/4 MD-X, and 200/4.5 MC and as a comparison my 80-200/2.8 Nikkor.
And this is what I found out. All performed remarkably well, The newer
being sharper than the older, and the zoom being the least sharp wide
open (it is the fastest too).
Unfortunately, Ebay's Item description is in contridiction to itself, The description is for an "Alpha" lens, which this is not. IT is manual focus, Old School Metal and beautifully constructed. I don't know how Ebay gets some of their descriptions so far off.
Let me know if you have any
questions! Sorry, I don't ship overseas. $10 covers priority mail
shipping, in a flat rate box, and i combine shipping!
