Minolta AF Reflex 500 Review – Letting the Cat Out of the Bag – By Bob Janes

This article is mainly a review of an unusual lens – Minolta AF Reflex 500 – one of the few Autofocusing Catadioptric lenses to be made. I also have a Korean-made manual focus ‘Cat’ that I will use for some comparisons. Mine is badged as a Vivitar. The same lens has been produced in recent times with a Samyang or Rokinon branding.
