Morning (or should that be evening) all.

I have a couple of $$s burning a hole in my pocket and was thinking of getting a mid range zoom to go with my XE-1.

As I am a Minolta AF fan from way back, I was thinking of getting the Manual focus equivilent of the 70-210 F4 'Beercan' that I love so much.

Firstly, for this lens, what did this come under? Was it MD, MC, Rokkor, ect? I want to make sure I get the right thing.

Also, does anyone know what the going price for these are?

Finally, just in case I am missing something, is there any other alternatives that people would recommend? I would prefer to keep it Minolta, but if there is a stand out 3rd party lens, I'd be willing to listen.

Cheers
