Hey hey all,
Recently I've started to get into Minolta lens. Just got a 35MC version not too long ago.
Now i'm looking to get a 85mm or 135mm. These lenses are cheap and good!
My question is which one to get? It seems the 85mm f1.7 or f2 is more expensive compared to the 135mm?
Also for the 135mm f2.8 with 4 blades seems the way to go? Anyone can chip in into this?
I'm trying to find one in eBay but its pretty hard, what should i put for the keyword?
all the versions of the 135/2.8 are pretty good, i've heard the later 4 element version is a bit sharper and certainly lighter weight, but i doubt it makes that much difference iq wise.
there are no cheap minolta 85mm lenses unfortunately. i find 85mm to be a much more useful focal length. i really like the 85/1.7, but it's not 5x as good as the price might suggest, it's just a different kind of lens.
the 85/2 i don't have any experience with, but haven't been super impressed with the images i've seen.
