|comment:||After buying a 70-300g a little while back, I decided to sell my Sp90 to recoup some cash -as most of my macro work is with flowers, losing the extra reach wasn't a problem, and the 70-300 more than made up for it :) So after looking at all the shorter macros, I managed to get an rs off ebay for a good price.|
And I'm glad I did! The 50 2.8 rs is a fantastic little lense, amazing iq, versatile legnth, solid build & looks the business to boot.
Out of all the Minolta glass I've owned so far, the colours from this lense are the most pleasing, like the 1.7 but better.
