This is an EXAKTA Zoom Lens for the Sony / Minolta A Mount.
It is specifically an EXAKTA 70-210mm f4-5.6 MC Macro High-Speed AF lens which is in great all round condition. The optics are excellent with no scratches and there is no sign of fungus, haze or dust inside. It is of the push/pull zoom system and being an Auto-Focus lens, there is no lens creep. It is a very solid lens weighing 440g, being made of metal and plastic.
The only let down is that the paint on the bottom of the zoom barrel has scrapped off - see pics. It in no way affects the performance of this lens, but it needs to be noted.
It comes with its original front and rear lens caps. The front lens cap has the EXAKTA logo on and the rear lens cap has the words "For Minolta".
EXAKTA lenses were made in Germany by different lens builders including Carl Zeiss and the performance of this lens is pretty good. I like the bokeh and the sharpness is nice too. I have used this lens on my Sony A300 camera with no problems. This lens can also be used on many other cameras with the correct adapters. I have used this on my Micro 4/3 camera, in completely manual mode only of course, and it works well.
This EXAKTA 70-210mm f4-5.6 MC Macro Zoom Lens will be sent well packed and promptly. My postage charges are very fair and I do not make money on shipping. On valuable items such as this I only offer certified/tracked (Certificado) postage to ensure that you receive the item purchased.
I am new to Etsy after having been a seller on eBay (and before that Yahoo Auctions) for many years with a 100% rating of well over 2000 sales. I specialise in cameras, camera lenses and filters and other camera gear, but I will also add other vintage items over time too. Thank you for looking :-)
