All of these photos show me one thing: 99% of the photo is the photographer's vision and 1% is the equipment. All of these lenses seem very capable if used by the right visionaire.

Totally agree!

But also the lens quality is imperative to be good one! Body...99% can be cheaper, but always make maximum effort to get an a really superb glass!

Keep posting Alex. I'm enjoying your enthusiasm.

This is a snapshot that I've always liked with one of my favorite lenses (and what I'd consider to be my highest quality lens).

Minolta 100mm f/2, wide open at f2

Hi my dear Jim!

Your 100mm F:2...NEVER I saw one here in Israel...maybe because was or still today very expensive & rare..., but really I once read it that is an a superb medium telephoto lens.
it's possible that next month my ordered Tamron 18-250mm zoom lens will be available here, so will be permanently fitted to my lovely "Till today...BUG free" 7D body.

For your sole enjoyment & to all our lovely Minolta/Sony owners & fans... another photo from my today inspiration day!:homey:

Peace,

Alex 007:|

Well JimC,

If that's just a "sanpshot" I can't wait for you to post some of your real pictures. This one is excellent. I wish I could do half as well!

Keep 'em coming.

I'm impressed. Perhaps I should have bought one while the price was "right". :-)

Dear all!

Thats the problem...changing lenses..."Dirt & Dust" enter & stick on the APC sensor surface...to avoid this problem that "Makes Me"...extremely unhappy & mad...when such newer Tamron 18-250mm zoom lens will be available here, 100% sure I will buy it and fit to my lovely 7D body..for Ever!!! So NO more "Dirt/Dust" issue...

Another example of the quality of my 24-85mm Minolta film zoom lens!:blah:

Peace.
