Konica Minolta 300mm f/2.8 APO G D SSM AF User Reviews
10 out of 10 points and recommended by tnman (3 reviews)outstanding imge quality, and the lense is built like a tankheavy
this is a wonderful piece of glass, and the images it produces are simply outstanding. It is heavy and awkward to handle, but worth the effort. It is not one designed for hand holding, as it should me mounted on either a monopod or tripod. The weight is significant, and the image quality is incredible.reviewed January 16th, 2009 (purchased for $3,000)
