Hi, thank's for replying!
I still hope there's someone out there that knows the answer to my question.
Since posting my question, I have found the List that I compiled, of all of the different "Brand" Names that I have seen, of this same Lens.
In reference to this AF 75-200mm f/4.5 Macro Zoom Lens, so far, I have found no less than SEVENTEEN (17) Names (versions?) for this same Lens!
Here they are: (In Alphabetical Order)
AM-PRO, CAMREX MC, COBRA MC, FIVE STAR (Toyo Optics), FOCAL, IMAGE, KODAK, MAGNICON, PLATINUM OPTICS, PROMASTER SPECTRUM 7, ProSpec, QUANTARAY MX, RYKA, ROKINON AF-Z, SAITEX, SAKAR, SOLIGOR.
I did find out, that the Promaster Spectrum 7 Lens, is from a Company called Photographic Research Organization, Inc. (PRO) of Fairfield, CT (USA).
Some Lenses have the same exact Pattern on the Rubberized Zoom Ring, and some don't.
I have also seen an AF 28-80mm f/3.5-4.5 Lens version that was paired with the AF 75-200mm Lens.
Interestingly, what I have Not seen, is this Lens offered in any other AF Camera Lensmount, other than just for Minolta AF Camera's. Very strange, isn't it??
I still have the Box, for the SOLIGOR version of the Lens I have.
The End-Panels of the Box reads;
75-200MM f/4.5 MACRO
SOLIGOR AF for Minolta 5/7/9000
AiC PHOTO INC (Logo) Made In Japan.
If You want to see what the Soligor Lens looks like, go to eBay and just type-in "AF 75-200mm Lens", and you'll see one, and, a bunch of other's of this Lens for sale there.
Here's a Photo of mine, of the type of Lens I'm talking about.
I call it; "A Bad Day At The Horse Show." Subtitled: "Time to get a New Lens."
It was a rainy day, and the Shoulder-Strap broke. Yes, the Camera survived!
