Sony Alpha 500/8 Reflex

Sony still has a Mirror lens on the market, the only one with Autofocus. This was release when Sony took over the Minolta SLR. Minolta introduced this lens to the market in 1991 - and it seems that Sony hasn't changed anything except the logo and the finish of this Mirror lens.
