price paid:100
comment:Quality lens.

For the cash it's quite unbelievable cosidering the cost of many lenses today.

When coupled with the Minolta 7D, it's the dream ticket. I say this as the 7D is sssslloooooowww by todays standards, but this lens makes it a perfect camera.

It hasn't been off my Minolta 7D for a long time.
