    Both are very nice camera's, but the 9 is arguably the best film SLR ever made and ever to be made. It's rocksolid, very fast and ergonomicly sound. It's overkill for most of us, but very, very nice to own. Unfortunately I don't...

    You do have some pretty nice glass for that Sony, for sure. But there are a lot of vintage gems out there made in the 90's that the Sony crowd doesn't know about and the 35-70 3.5-4.5 and the Beercan are two of them.

    I shoot a lot of AF Canon stuff and it's the same over on our side of the fence. We have a 70-210 f4 that eventually evolved into the venerable 70-200 f4 and f2.8, but the 70-210 is a definite gem. The 28-70 Macro, I'm repairing one as we speak. The original metal-mount nifty-fifty 1.8, and speaking of, you're gonna love the background rendering on that Minolta 50 1.7, that is one of the best 50mm lenses ever produced.

    Yeah, the 50mm is honestly my most used lens and honestly while I would love to have a 50mm 1.4 I'm not sure it is worth the upgrade, the main reason I would upgrade and it is pretty minor is that the bokeh highlights are hexagonal instead of circles, but honestly that is just minor for the price it cost.
    I shoot both film and digital equipment.
