    It's a little ancient and kind of heavy, but it was designed for Minolta circuitry. Try it out on several focusing distance ranges and speeds ... to see if it looks consistently true at 210mm. If it looks fuzzy ... then that can be a problem.

    Good luck and get a good price.

    hopefully available in the very near future. I would like one for Christmas, personally.

    Oh well ... the wait goes on.
