    Hi all,
    as the title says I bought three lenses (with an old body that I do not care for 85 euros)
    Do you think that it was a good price?

    The item description was
    Code:
    Minolta MD Bayonet Mount :  Tele - Lens  + Standart Lens + Wide Angle + X 300 Body
    + Strap + HM - Universal Leather Case + Camera Case + Lens Caps
    Lenses : clear and clean, no scratches
    Mechanic : Smooth working,.... body also working
    Appearence : minimum signs of use ( nice  condition)
    and the image lenses can be found here of that product:

    What do you think? Was it a good offer ? Actually I wanted to risk it :)

    Regards
    Alex

    That's not a bad deal if the lenses are OK.

    I see an MD 28 2.8 and an MD 45 2 - what is the other lens?

    The other one is a Minolta MD Tele Rokkor 135/2.8 in its first incarnation, clearly identifiable by its non-tapered depth-of-field scale. The lettering at the front lens ring comes in two variations, which is inconsequential for anyone else than a collector :). It's heavy and it's good like any other MD 135/2.8. This is mine (first variety):

    Thanks Ad :thumbup:

    Then I would say the total price is worth it IF the lenses are optically & mechanically good ;)
