OK..... So I was happy with my purchase of the Minolta AF-50...... so now I'm thinking I'd like something in the telephoto range. I was looking at another little hole in the wall like camera store (they are the best) and I asked about what he had in the way of Minolta or Alpha mountable lens. He pulled out the only lens he had which so happen to be this one.http://www.dyxum.com/reviews/lenses/rev ... IDLens=250
Tonika AF 70-210mm/4-5.6 (beer can equiv) and had a price-tag of 95.00 on it if memory serves me right. Just curious the thoughts on this one, I'd talking the guy to 75.00 on it, but someone I think that's not going to happen since he actively sells film cameras to college/high-school photography teachers, ect. The lens itself was immaculate, it didn't appear to have had more than maybe a few shots taken with it, so im not sure I could talk him down any, plus this isn't exactly a pawn shop. Whats the take on this affordable glass looking glass? Having the 18-55 kit lens, the 50/1.7 and this... would adding this tie me over for awhile (id have a general use, portrait/night shot and a telephoto). The only thing missing from that list is Macro and I think i'll do without until much later.
