    Not really seeing many examples of the Minolta lenses on any E mount via Flickr, FM, etc. what's the consensus on these? Awfully cheap and they're fairly modern. Seems like a no-brainer so I'm expecting a catch :) Thanks

    the best minolta lens that i have is a celtic 200mm f/4... minolta made some magic 200/4 lenses, and the celtic isn't normally listed as one of 'em, but it was built in a similar time frame to those lenses.

    it seems pretty sharp to me: Police motorcycle competition photos

    i also have a 35-70/4 autofocus lens, but it appears to have serious distortion at 35mm, haven't looked at it much.
