Re: Top 10 Minolta legacy lenses!

1. 50mm 2.8 macro - Very underrated. The sharpest lens I own, especially good on APS bodies

2. 400mm f4.5G - Never failed me, fully sharp wide open

3. 300mm f4.0G - As good as the 400G except for fringing/CA. Much easier to carry around.

4. 1.4TC - Extra reach for the 300/400/70-200 without loss of IQ

5. 28-135mm - If I could only have one walk around/landscape lens for the A900. Might change my mind if I had the 17-35G or to 20-78G.

6. 100mm f2.0 - New life on the NEX-7 as a relatively small, fast 150mm. Wish I had a 28mmf2 or 35mm f2 to go along with it.

7. 135mm f2.8 - Same as (6) except 200mm on the NEX

8 50mm f1.4 - New life as the goto portrait lens on the NEX

9 100-300mm f4.5-5.6 APO - Underrated. Sharp and small. The one lens that always ends up going on vacation when I fly.

10. Great lens I never had but wish I did 135mm STF, 85mm f1.4, 200mm f2.8G
