Hello all,

I am interested in the 50mm macro

What would be the best option/version:
Minolta - AF 50 F3.5 Macro
Minolta - AF 50 F2.8 Macro
Minolta - AF 50 F2.8 Macro RS
Minolta - AF 50 F2.8 Macro D

On Dyxum notations... They seem very similar...

Is there any version to avoid?

PS. Actually I have the 50mm/1.7

Many thanks in advance for you suuport

FWIW, unless you're shooting anything other than bugs then I would suggest either of the latter two in your list, but if you're going to shoot bugs, then none are suitable due to the close distance between you and your subject. It's too short. You need 90-105mm, that way you won't spook them.
