Hi everyone, I'm new here. The only new lenses for my 5D (which I got in December) is the kit 18-70. But the lenses I have with my old Maxxum 5 are : Minolta 50 1.7, Minolta 28-100 3.5-5.6, Minolta 100 2.8, Tamron 200-400 5.6. Nothing special, but gets the job done. Hope I will be posting here regularly!

Welcome to the forums! And, based on the images I've seen from users of the 100mm f/2.8, I think it is a pretty special lens.

Some of these lenses will not be manufactured by sony in the near future. I'm curious though: how many of these remakes are as good or better than the 1980s lenses made by minolta?

National Camera & exchangetent sale in Golden Valley, Mn. It didn't come withcaps, but it's inexecellent shape thats whyit was cheap. No scratches look all most brandnew. The QC pass sticker fell off.

I was gonna buy it out from under you when I heard they had it but after I factored inroundtrip airfare from New York, I figured I might as well let you have it.

This lens disease has to stop, in 1 1/2 I have picked up 3 lenses. I could see myself buying a G lens while sleep walking.
