:?I'm buying the 5D with the 18x70 kit lens, thats all I can spend now, but I saw a 50mm prime 1.7 Minolta lens for 89.00, is it junk?, would it be any better than the kit lens set at 50mm? would it be much better in low light?

thanks for you help

lens is $80 brand new at B&H

much better in low light

lens is very good at f1.7, excellent at f2.8, superb at f4-11, excellent at f16

Go ahead this is a good lens, very useful.
50mm f/1,4 doesn't worth the price difference.
