Sony A-mount professional lenses and bodies...

Its a good time to get these at a discount especially if you already have a serious investment in the A-mount system. Many japanese and european professional photographers are selling this equipement off at big discounts due to Sony's recent abandonment of the A-mount. For example the last and best version in near mint condition of the Minolta 300mm AF APO HS f2.8 can be found for about $800 which is (in my opinion) one of the best 300mm ever built. The best pro body the A99ii (2018 42MP version 60f 4K video) can be found in practically new condition for half the price they were sold last year.

If like me you are reluctant to buy a completely new set-up (at a very high cost) - forget those Sony E-converters they all seriously reduce image quality of those a-mount pro lenses even if they are often fine for budget lenses- then now is the opportunity to get those lenses missing from your kit and to add pro bodies to asssure future usabilty.

Of course it means not having 6k/8k video or 99MP images but to be honest these are not really exploitable outside the cinema industry or if you need wall sized enlargements.
