    Hi there minolta fans,
    I was looking the other day to buy the minolta 50-250 mm lens but unfortunately I could not find it listed here:

    http://www.rokkorfiles.com/Lens Reviews.html

    do you have any idea if there is a minolta listing with reviews that is a bit more complete than the one I gave you?

    I would like to thank you in advance for your reply

    Regards
    Alex

    It's probably a Tokina 50-250mm, available in various mounts including Minolta SR.

    No reviews per se, but lots of info and commentary here if you havent already tried it.

    http://minolta.eazypix.de/

    The first tab, Minolta SR Lens Index, has a wealth of info with a little bit of extra commentary.

    Hi Alaios, no such thing, I'm afraid. Minolta did make a 50-135 with a constant aperture of f3.5 which is an excellent and useful lens. Tokina made a 50-250 if you want to research that.

    Sounds like a weird focal length range for old film lenses. Usually 50-2xx telephotos are APS-C lenses as they translate to 75-300ish. Canon has a 50-250 AF lens I think for APS-C
