The first generation body is made of metal. There is a focus limiter switch to speed up focusing. The lens and the Minolta AF 70-210mm f/4 lens are colloquially known as the "big beercan" and "beercan" by Minolta camera users because their lens shape and size closely match the proportions of a typical aluminum beer can.
Second to Third Generation
The metal body is replaced by a plastic body. Consequently, the lens is much lighter. The second generation has a focus hold button. Starting from the third generation, this lens is produced in black or silver color.
The new D type supports ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) flash metering function.
After Sony purchased the Minolta Camera Division, this lens was re-released under the Sony brand. The Sony lens retains most of the Minolta design but comes with a new look.
