Hmm, strange....

Mine was the older one but still one wonderful lens.

Mounted on my Dynax 7

And here it is with the rest of it's A-mount brethen back in the day:

24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.0, 50mm f/1.7, 85mm f/1.4, 100mm f/2.8 macro, 300mm f/4.0, 1.4x Teleconvertor II APO, Tokina 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5, Tokina AT-X 80-200mm f/2.8 and Sigma 400mm f/5.6 APO

The 85 really is one of those special Minolta lenses.  But I have to honestly say that the old Contax Zeiss 85/2.8 I use now is an even better lens in all aspects except speed.    But a part of me does miss my Minolta days....

And how's the AF ?   Just joking
