    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: 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

    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.

    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
