    I'd rate this as very good to excellent. Focus is smooth, aperture is snappy, glass is clean, coating is fine and wear on the barrel is less than average to much less than average depending on how critical the analyst is. It comes in the Minolta case (showing age and deterioration as these cases always do) with both Minolta caps and the Minolta hood. The hood has a slight edge dent. You could fix this, but it never bothered me. It is positioned facing the lens in the image. Please let me know if you want more information on that. $250 firm plus actual shipping and I won't ship this without insurance. In fact, international shipping must also include a true statement of value. If you've been looking for this lens, please, please, please don't hesitate. You should already realize this price is low by as much as $100 and most of these sell without the hood...pawnshops or camera dealers break them into two lots and try to sell the hood separately.

    Here is what has been selling: ( http://www.ebay.com/csc/i.html?_nkw=minolta+85mm+1.7&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc ) Also note, most of these are the newer versions. This lens is the older version, and those are seen by many as preferable to the newer one.


    PayPal ok for international buyers, check or money order for domestic (USA) buyers please.
