Minolta MD Zoom 75 - 200mm F 4.5 Zoom Lens - With Rear Cap and Minolta Lens Hood - Excellent
Here we have a pristine Minolta MD Zoom 75-20mm F/4.5 zoom lens with original lens hood and rear lens cap.
This lens is fully functional and in exceptional condition. Aperture blades are snappy and oil-free, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with mechanical precision. The glass elements are spotless, free of fungus, dust, or optical aberrations. The focus ring spins with perfectly weighted fluidity and the lens mount and filter threads are unmarred and pristine.
The included lens hood is in excellent condition, and the original Minolta rear lens cap is similarly excellent.
Minolta's MD lens range is among the best of any vintage lens from any manufacturer. Their optical coatings are virtually flawless, resulting in a lens that produces incredible sharpness, contrast, and color. They don't suffer from some of the optical aberrations of other lenses, resulting in images with no color-fringing, glare, ghosting, or lens flares.
They're among the best-built lenses of all time, and their quality is incredibly difficult to beat in vintage lenses or even modern glass. They're among the best values in all of photography, and anyone who knows and shoots Minolta will tell you the same.
This particular lens runs through an exceptional range of focal lengths, from 75mm to 200mm. This makes it ideal for many types of shooting, including portraiture, nature shooting, wildlife photography, action, sports, and any photography done at a distance from your subject.
This truly versatile lens also offers a fixed maximum aperture of 4.5, which is excellent for sharpness, clarity, and subject isolation at the longer end of the focal length (200mm). It produces exceptionally sharp images when stopped down, and when zoomed in it's capable of isolating subjects well enough for great headshot and product shooting.
This lens will naturally fit onto any SR mount (MD/MC) Minolta camera, or can be easily adapted to today's mirror-less, micro 4/3rds, and DSLR cameras using suitable adapters.

The lens will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
