If 50mm Macro's are 50 GBP from reliable Ebay sellers, why are we having this discussion?

May be available for £60 on another forum both me and Simon are on. I'll PM him the link.

Well, I never had any use for their customer service. They offer, however, 6 months warranty.


Used them only once but that was enough to put me off. I bought a Minolta 100-300mm D from them. It had focus issues so I had to return it. They refused to refund me both the postage charges. As per law they had to at least refund the outgoing postage costs.
I don't deal with shops that think they are above the law and cheat people. All other UK shops would have refunded both the postage costs as the lens was faulty.

Bought my Min 50s (orig & RS) on ebay for around £60 each - I am very very happy with them. The 100 D was £140 - a bit over the £100 budget, but a bargain nonetheless.

A 100 D for £140 is an absolute steal, I love mine.

Glad you found what you needed. For future readers... I have the 50mm Minolta Macro RS and the 100 mm macro D. Highly recommend both. They fringe a little under certain conditions, but I use mine for everything. They with my Sony 16-50mm ssm stay in my bag.

+1 to that, I have stupidly many lenses but the 50mm RS is the lens I use most.
