comment:I sat down tonight and looked through my stuff, had not done that in a long time. Sure enough half my Minolta Len’s were ‘new’, but then I had not noticed. Then again, half of them were originals.
This one is the 35-105, ‘new’, but I still love it. I used it as my walk around for a bit and I always have it around. I shoot on a 5D. That camera paired with that lens is really quite good. Better than that, really good.
So, It’s in my bag with the 35-70 f4 and the 100 f.28.
And the beercan.
Onward, through the fog!
