Additional information:


The Minolta AF 24-50 mm  f/ 4  is a standard zoom lens for 35 mm SLR cameras with the А bayonet mount.

The lens belongs to the legendary Minolta lineup with f/4 constant lens speed, which ensures natural color rendering, good contrast and high resolution throughout the entire range of 24 - 50 mm.

Cons and pros of the Minolta AF 24-50 F4:

- Sharp only when stopped down, front element rotation, chromatic aberrations when mounted on digital cameras.

+ Accurate color rendering, good performance at 24 mm, compact size, good build.

In 1992  a restyled variant of this lens was released.

The optical scheme dose not correspond to this lens, it is likely to belong to the previous non-AF 13/11 version.
