|comment:||I bought this lens in a multi buy which included 50mm 1.7, 100-200mm and Minolta 7000 with flash. I was only interested in the 50mm but I fell in love with this lens. It is a fantastic lens and I think I degrade the kit lens as back up lens for this one. Although I will miss wide angles.|
Total price was 86 GBP so that was actually a steal considering the 50mm goes for over 50 GBP.
This lens is not a lot on the market, but still you can get it for cheap. Grab it with both hands and praise yourself lucky ... rarely you will find easy bargains like this lens.
