I have a KM 5D. Within a weekafter buying it I won a Sigma 70-300 APO 4-5.6 Super Macro for it on eBay for just $98. It came in absolutely mint++ condition. Although it's not the later version for digital cameras (it's the gold stripe) it is a very sharp lens. The color is excellent and the autofocus is fast.And I don't think it's too noisy either. The bigplus on this lens is the Macro mode which allows me to really zoom in when in the 200mm + range. All in all I am very happy with my lens. Itfits my budget and it's a really great lens. I also have the 18-70mm kit lenswhich I like a lot too. And I caught a great deal on eBay again with a 50mm 1.7 that was in mint++ condition for only $45. So I'm set. Now I just have to figure out how to use all this stuffand take some interesting photos.

Hope it helps!

Jim

Jim,



An eBay Minolta dealer, who has sold me quite q bit of Minolta equipment, told me that in his opinion the 50mm 1.7 was superior to the 50mm 1.4 due to faster focusing. Have you heard this?

I also notice that B&H has a Sigma 50-500 for $679 US used, if anyone is still looking for one.
