Are any of you guys playing with the Sony 11-18mm yet? A friend has a zoom for her Canon that goes down to 10mm. THAT is a lens I'm envious of...

Buy a Minolta f1.7 50mm lens for $125 on ebay and laugh at those (now) poor fools on canon/nikon who spent $500-$1500+ for the same comparably performing lens.

Act like you are in the poor house because of the lens but laugh quietly knowing you were the smarter one!

Wow, they are going for $125 now. I got mine for $50 about a year ago. I think you can still find them at $80 American Dollars. You probably were talking Canadian Dollars.

And, yes you are right. Only thing is that50mmdoes not deliver you the wide angle which comes in very handy in a Church. But then again f3.5 is very close to f2.8. And that's what the kit lens gives you at 18mm. And the optics are pretty darn good.

Here is a shot indoorsin low light at a wider angle (26mm) and f4.5 with the 18-70 kit lens.

I paid about $40 for my 50 1.7 about a year ago. It was used, of course, in excellent condition, and it came with something attached to it; it seemed to be an older Maxxum that used something called "film".

I gave it to my sister-in-law. She's still a purist like I used to be. How times change!

I nailed one in excellent shape on EBay late one night with buy it now for less than 20 dollars. I don't think the seller was into cameras. The lens is spotless.
