Bid on poorly described and awfully photographed minolta 7000 with what I thought was a 50mm 1.4 attached to it. When it arrived it was a 24 2.8.

Price includes postage was eur133, which I consider reasonable for either of those two lenses.

It also had Minolta cable release, a step down 55-49 ring and 3 filters and a bewi light meter

F-Stop? F-Stopped! Anyone know how to get it going again???My Flickr

I'd been looking to get an LA-EA2 for some time and just unwilling to pay the prices they had been going for. I'm looking to go with an A6000 for my next camera and was super happy to get a minty adapter (box, manuals, everything), for $150.

edit: My latest "great deal" arrived today: Minolta Beercan. I had been eyeing them up for a long time, just didn't want to pay the price that I've been seeing them go for. I got mine for $65. End cap, case, metal hood, just no lens cap. Some marks on the body, rubber is in good shape and not marbled from age or whatever.

I don't know if it would be considered a "great deal" but IMO somewhere between good and great I guess...

I got this off someone in the local Craigslist for $1300 CAD, the way I see it... it's about $1178 in USD. As an American living in British Columbia and I hate buying new things locally because of the dreadful 5% + 7% tax, basically 12%, not to mention the prices are usually higher to begin with. After reading some reviews on the new 70200 G2, I can't justify the $3200 price tag (yes, it's $3200 in Canada )

so far my first impression vs my Minolta 80-200mm f2.8 APO G (haven't even taken it out yet), I'll miss the faster AF on the Minolta, but I will NOT miss the loud focusing. I DO like having the extra 10mm (70mm vs 80mm), but being 70-200mm (vs 80-200mm) it's a bigger lens, and it will now take up a LOT more room in my backpack (yes, there's a big difference, because it can only be laid down sideways vs standing up like other shorter lenses). It would have been nice to have the faster AF and the weather sealing of the G2, but... then again $1300 (tax free) vs $3200 + 12%... that's like almost triple.   Anyways, the Minolta 80-200mm f2.8 will be up for sale after I do some comparison shots

Daytona.... GREAT deal. Congrats.

Ken... good deal. I think you will miss your 80-200G... but I certainly understand your needing this for the quiet motor given the fashion shooting.

Here is my little contribution to the thread. Sony AF20 2.8 in EX++ condition. I had intended on a buy and sell..... but I am going to keep this and sell my 2 UWA zooms. Why? Because its SO tiny! I tend to travel light and often I elect to lose the wide zoom (and then of course regret it). No more - this lens is so tiny and light it will always make it in the bag.

Price?   $260 CAN.

Ken, good price, good buy. A great lens all around IMHO. Very good on FF, so-so on Aps-c.

Mike, that is a great price. When I was shopping for one they were usually in the $320+ range. Plus, it looks to be in good condition.

Still can't really believe it, I got this beauty, Minolta 400 4.5 HS in EX+ condition from Adorama. Came with everything as new, both caps, hood, case, front filter, and drop in polarizer and normal filter. All for $1749. Is it normal for them to sell used gear this cheap? I saw the same lens on there a week ago for $2700.

Given they are asking $3000 for a similar condtion 300 2.8 I would say "no". Congrats on a great scoop!

That polarizer alone is worth at least 250.

yeah, I definitely didn't expect the polarizer to be in there, with the high condition rating and the low price I expected something to be missing

Budget buy and still not recieved so I'm still not convinced it's a great deal.
Itorex Video Sem-fisheye attachment with case - $0.99

Not sure if I'm going to be able to attach it to any of my lenses but the Minolta hardcase that it's shipped in according to photos is easily worth more than the 99 cents

I missed the greatest deal in the history of local Kijiji by 2 hours (meaning I called 2 hours after the ad was posted and was told later in the day that all items were sold to the first caller).
600mm 4.0 1600CAD
300mm 2.8 800CAD

To the guy in Toronto that won the lottery today, if you're here: please share:)
