Minolta made a lot of good glass both AF and MF. Was wondering what the ultimate top 10 list of Minolta lenses would be. I have the Minolta 50mm f1.4 that should surely make the list, it's my fave legacy lens. I'm not very familiar with the entire product family. What's your Minolta top 10?

I'll break it down ito two groups :(a) AF and 9b) MF

AF

28mm/F2

50mm/1.4

85mm/F1.4

100mm/f2

200mm/F2.8 G

300mm/F2.8

400mm/F4.5

80-200mm/f2.8

28-135mm/f4

MC/MD

28mm/f2

28mm/F2.8 VFC

50mm/1.2 (yes there is one)

85mm/F1.7

100mm/f2.5

200mm/f2.8 or F4

250/f5.6 mirror

600mm/F6.3 APO (very rare)

800mm/F8 Mirror (Really sharp although exhibits CA on digital)

I had good luck with these lenses on my 5n

Cheers

Tim
