Hey Rusty. I'm glad you like your beercan.
I have yet to buy a longer lens in Maxxum mount. I guess I'll have to break down and buy a long zoom or two eventually. My longest lens right now in Minolta AF mount is the Minolta 135mm f/2.8 :-)
Right this minute, the new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 is on my radar for next, though (sometimes, my Minolta 28mm f/2 isn't bright enough for me and since Sigma started making their 30mm f/1.4 in Minolta AF mount, I've been considering it as a possible replacement). So, a longer zoom may have to wait a bit longer. lol
I'm still kicking myself for not buying a beercan when they were selling all day long for under $100.
