The one I used for the shot above is not metal. I bought it at B&H...but others sell it for the same price also.
BTW I finally shot some pix with the 100-300 APO Here's a sample:

This is the cropped close up of the eye, since I had to make the original file small enough for 200k and lost a lot of quality.

Yes...The first lens is the one that I have to shoot the skimboarders.

A forum member in dpreview bought this lens for her Minolta A2 not knowing that her camera is a fix lens....Maybe you can buy hers cheap!!!

The old metal 75-300 is much better than the two others. If you can't find one look at the Minolta 100-300 APO. More expensive but very good. It's better to spend a little more the first time around. You can keep good glass as you move thru bodies.

yeahI've read that the old metal one was better, the thing isI am on a budget and agaist time, a friend is coming down from the USA and he can bring me whatever lensI send to his house, he iscoming down on nov 6, soI am basically stuck with the new 75-300 or thesigma, the 100-300 is almost double the price of any of these maybeI can get that later, but right now, no chance

Thanks all for the help!

and again if you see a 75-300 all metal lens for sale, let me know
