    I have a 135mm and a 50mm but not the 85mm rokkor. Interested to see some shots with it.

    They are worth quite a bit of money though, as i understand it?

    I have decided to let it go. Its to big for me haha. Got it out on a buy sell place here in sweden for 285 Euro. Maybee ebay.de is better to sell it on?
    A Original Bag and a UV filter is there to.

    Looks excellent indeed, but € 285 is a fairly high price nevertheless for it. If you want a Minolta 85mm, the 85/2 is a better option in terms of size and weight. I have one and it handles quite well on my NEX-6.

    It is big, especially with the shade on.

    I have a 45mm Rokkor that I love, hope this one is just as enjoyable.

    Seems hard here in sweden to sell it hehe. Its around 124 persons who checked my add out in two days without any respons. Not even the always "I can pay" or "I want it but will you change it to a ***?"
    Haha

    From my daily ebay rounds (yeah I do that :p ) I see MD 85s 1.7 sell for more money that what you're asking...but most of those ads are in the US. Patience :)
