    WTB: Cheap Minolta lens

    Hey, folks --

    I'm putting together a Minolta kit as a gift for a dear friend who enjoyed doing photography many years ago but in hard times had to sell off his camera, which I learned was some variety of Minolta. I've been trying to do this at very low cost, and I've already found for him an inexpensive, working SRT-100 and a Sigma 70-210/4-5.6 lens, but I'd also like to provide him with either a 50mm or preferably one of the third-party (like Sigma) 24-85mm zooms made in MC/MD mount. I'm hoping someone has a unwanted or duplicate lens lying around that I could snag for cheap (under $20 shipped). Trolling the auction site gets to be tedious. I'd also look on KEH, but I myself order from them so infrequently that paying $10 shipping for just one inexpensive item isn't worth it.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance!
    Terry.

    Hi Terry !

    I'm in the process of moving, at the moment.

    When I start unpacking in a few weeks I'll let you know what falls out of the boxes.
    I should have a 50, and a zoom lens in there, somewhere. If it's not too late, by then ...

    Enjoy The Weekend !

    Ron

    Actually, Ron, I just looked at KEH after posting this and I found two zoom lenses, one a miscellaneous brand UG at just $0.69 (that's right, 69 cents!) and the other a Tokina BGN at $7.00. I just bought both - $10 shipping doesn't matter at those prices!

    Thanks for the offer, Ron, I really appreciate it! I'm always looking for Minolta gear nevertheless. I'll lock this thread from further public posts.
