Beercan time! No, this has not turned into a Beer Reviews stream! It is the good old Minolta 70-210mm f4 lens, affectionately called "(The) Beercan" by Minolta-Alpha-Sony fans. This lens is now tested in the modern era by Robin Wong in a new photographer-priority lens review.
From a compact prime we go to a giant prime, the Sony 500mm f4G SSM SLR lens which challenged the Dxomark testing process enough that they had to use their new Seattle-dpreview lab in order to get it done. This is their report.
