    I love Dad's Pentax. I was looking for one, but the Minolta came along at the right price....

    Welcome in the GAS affected lot. I suggest you don't look any further than Minolta SR mount lenses (also called MD, or MC/MD lenses by many, for whichever reason). Minolta manual focus lenses tend to be very, very good and relatively cheap in the second-hand market. I have a Minolta gear set and never felt the need for anything different to replace it.

    Just a quick update:

    I made it too Bellingham, WA almost two weeks ago. I've been busy lining up work and teaching my Beautiful Girlfriend how to use the Minolta.

    I'll keep up with things here on the board as I have the time too!
