"Ryan, my Morse is so rusty that for all I know I could be sending him the measurements for Playmate of the month"....
That's it Roy!By "poke around", I mean that I'll spend hours on the web searching for a cheaper priced one. If I count what my time is worth, I'd come out ahead by just buying the thing right off the bat. Still, gotta love the thrill of scoring a "bargain"!! Bill
Yeah...I may have to just buy it and try it. There's always eBay if it doesn't work out. Bill
What's the secret? Bill
Hi Roy!I started shooting Minolta with my first real SLR, an SRT-102, in '76. I have several Minolta auto focus lenses that I'm holding on to. Eventually I will buy a Sony alpha so they should get me started in DSLR land. Is that why you're interested in the lenses...you've got a D7 or alpha? If so, how do you like it?In AF I have: Minlota 35-105 kit lens - okay performer Sigma 75-300 APO - good performer Sigma 18-35 - very good performerI still have a few MF lenses too: Minolta 16mm fisheye - with built in filters! Minolta 24mm Minolta 58mm f/1.2 - big glass! Solid metal focus ring too Sigma 135mm f/1.8 - BIG glass Soligor 200mm f/2.8 - pretty big glassI even have an XK body with meter and waist level prisms! Too bad it's not worth much any more. Guess I really should see about selling off the MF stuff to see if I can get enough money to buy the alpha. Supposed to be rainy here (San Antonio) this weekend...maybe I'll put the MF stuff on eBay and see what happens...unless you're interested in anything??? :?: Bill
