Re: Was thinking of selling/swapping my a99 II for a7R II

Well, took my a99 II with the Minolta lens attached, out yesterday.  Took about 75 pictures.  All stationary, all old cars or car parts.

On one hand the lens did provide a lot of nicely detailed pictures.  Much better than I expected.  And that's one of my pet peeves...the pictures should look like what my eye sees (not fuzzy, less detailed shots).  But I couldn't help but wonder how long the focus/zoom motor and gearing will last.  It's pretty noisy.  It didn't really bother me, sound wise, but I know that noisy gears wear themselves faster than quiet gears.  Wish I could recall the sound level from back in the days when it was attached to my Minolta camera body..!  Oh well, use it to use it up I guess.  Not much need for a lens like this in any museum is there..?
