I have been looking for a portrait lens for my Minolta SRT 101 (generally shoot B&W), a friend offered to sell me the above lens for $225 (very good condition). Seems to be a little high for 30+ yr old 35mm lens so I am somewhat hesitant but I see the prices on the auctions sites tend to exceed his asking price. Anyone using this lens who might lend me their opinion?
That lens was expensive when new also. Part of it is due to the fast speed of that focal length.The 85 was expensive but no where near the awesome varisoft.
