Re: The fabulous Minolta 50/2.8 macro

Yeah, I know, Ken Rockwell calls the 100/2.8 "optical perfection" or somesorts.

I have all the macro function I need with the 50/2.8, and I doubt if I had the 100/2.8 it would see much use at all.

Besides, stopping down the 50/2.8 only very marginally improves imaging performance (crop sensor), so any improvement the 100/2.8 would bring is fairly irrelevant.

So yeah, I don't need the 100/2.8

But I want it the way one might want a piece of art. Just for the pleasure of owning it.
