The newest addition to the site is the Sony/Minolta AF lens price guide.  This page has been in the works for quite some time, and it’s ready for immediate use.  Notice I’ve put a link on the Nav bar for handy one-click access.  You’ll be able to get an idea of about how much you’re going to need to pay for new and used Sony, Konica Minolta and Minolta AF lenses.  I’ve included all 26 new Sony lenses and teleconverters, and will include legitimate internet dealers prices in the guide as well, though most will be based on eBay final selling prices.  Please note I haven’t included all Minolta lenses and probably won’t.  I’m just going to stick to the more popular ones right now due to time constraints.  As I state on the page, I plan to update the “selling price” box whenever there’s a change for that particular lens, or about once a month. There’re over 70 listings right now, and some information is missing for certain lenses, more time will be needed to fill in all the boxes with accurate estimates, so be patient.  I’m also going to add some other items of interest in the future, like Sony DSLR accessories such as flashes, remote shutters and cases etc.

Next up, I have a comparison page that should be ready by mid-week that’ll illustrate the differences between the Sony Carl Zeiss 16-80mm, and Sony 16-105mm lenses.  It’ll be mostly a re-hash of the 16-105mm, so if you have read that review and the Carl Zeiss review, you don’t really need to look at it.  It’s meant to be a handy page for people considering both lenses.

I’m working on the new Sony 70-300mm F/4.5-5.6 G SSM lens review and should have it ready by the middle of the month.  So far, it’s a gem.
