Earlier this past weekend, I bought:

It'* so much fun using this thing, built in 1975, LIKE A TANK! Indestructible. Got a good deal.

Hey Jerry I have the Minolta SRT 101. So you decided to get another 35MM. I haven't touched the Nikon F90 in years. I think there'* still film in it from when you took picture with it.

You are obsesed my friend.

I have a 1973 Yashica with a couple lenses I am looking to get rid of if you are interested. Comes with a case, case for the larger lense, and some other little extras.

^ygpm!


edit: Hans, I already have a gamut of Minolta Autofocus glass that carries over to Sony DSLRs. Sony bought Konica Minolta'* DSLR division in 2005 or so and is carrying on their lens mount.

On the A700 I'll be using:

Minolta 50mm f/1.7 prime lens
Minolta 28-85mm f/3.5-4.5
Minolta 70-210 f/4 "Beercan"
Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG
Tokina AF193 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5 super-wide angle

I used to have a Minolta like that. Not the same model I'm sure, but those old ones built in the 70s. I kind of miss the old manual way of taking pics.
