Re: Top 10 Minolta legacy lenses!

I'm going to recommend lenses that I own or have owned. I'm using my legacy Minolta lenses on Sony mirrorless cameras, A7s and A6000. Note to potential buyers, for some strange reason some lenses are sharp on the full frame body but not on the APS-C body. For example my Minolta 135mm 2.8 is great with the A7s but not as good with the A6000. Also, as you all know, you can have a good version or a bad version of any particular lens. The lenses I've found to be wonderfully sharp are as follows:
50mm 2.8 macro
24-50mm 4.0
35-105mm 3.5-4.5
135mm 2.8

Let me also recommend a Sigma Minolta mount 70-300 4.0-5.6 for those on a budget that need a tack sharp and cheap telephoto zoom. The first three lenses on my list can be found ridiculously cheap on ebay etc.
