Re-visiting Minolta AF lenses - Photo Jottings

Re-visiting Minolta AF lenses

Do you really want to spend $10,000 USD on a few good lenses to put on your $3000 full frame body?  If you’re going to buy the 35/1.4 Zeiss, 50/1.4 Zeiss, 85/1.4 GM, 24-70/2.8 GM and 70-200/2.8 GM lenses, plan on spending just that!

I’m not going to spend that much, even though I run a photography business and can afford to buy every lens in the Sony line-up.  Why would I not buy the best lenses  since I do use the equipment every day?  Well, because I don’t think it’s necessary. I’ve never needed more than about 24mp for any finished work, and after re-visiting my images from almost 10 years ago, I honestly can hardly tell the differences from a brand new expensive ‘e’ mount Zeiss lens from many of the old Minolta AF lens I used and reviewed years ago; so I’ve decided to go back and dig through some of my test shots and see which lenses I can recommend for the new Sony Mirrorless high megapixel cameras.  The first lens I re-visited was the Minolta AF 135/2.8, see the post below.

Currently there are some big holes in the Sony ‘e’ mount line-up, and I’ll be covering those areas first; so stay tuned for more Minolta AF lens recommendations!
