Hope about Top 3?

I've only owned maybe 10 or so Minolta (and Sigma, Tamron, Promaster, etc.) lenses total, and I'd bet that most people reading this thread haven't owned enough legacy glass to select 10 keepers out of however many they've had...

Still, I have three that 'stuck' out of the following: 18-55 II SAM kit (not 'legacy' of course), Tamron/Promaster 70-300 LD (also not legacy), Sigma 75-300, Sigma 35-135, Minolta 35-105 (RS), Minolta 28-80 Xi, Minolta 75-300 New, Minolta 28-135 'Secret Handshake', Minolta 50mm 1.7 'non-RS', Promaster 28-80 Aspherical. I also spent time with a Minolta 75-300 'D' (I think, or it was a 'II').

Of those, the Minolta 75-300 New, 28-135 SH and 50mm 1.7 turned out to be keepers.
