Well the pick of the crop seems to be a Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f1.4 prime. Anyone know if it's worth anything?


The low price for this lense is that it is not 'A' mount, so will not fit Sony DSLR's and it will probably be manaul focus and only suitable to older Minolta camaera's

That sounds about right, yes. Shame it doesn't have a modern mount, because it's a beautifully built lens.

Go all the way........ back to basics! 5x4 MPP, with a leaf shutter AND a focal plane shutter.
