Minolta zoom 28-85mm f/3.5-4.5 AF + 1.7x teleconverter
I'm looking for a wider lens for my Minolta X-700. I'm trying to keep the price under $50 with shipping and I need it before march 10th. Would this [url=http://www.ebay.com/itm/Soligor-Minolta-F2-8-28mm-Wide-Angle-X700-X570-X370-XD-/320709892214?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4aabcc9876#ht_500wt_1287] Soligor Minolta F2.8 28mm[/url] be a good choice?

Tripod arrived yesterday so I can now try out long exposure images
I was thinking of getting a DSLR, but I don't really give a shit about much technology and stuff like that, I'd much rather buy a great lens for a simpler body. How is the 1000D from Canon? What would you recommend, also for a lens with great depth?
Got my RZ today! [img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7160/6809126271_acfc18b427.jpg[/img] New rule, every picture in this thread has to have a wooden texture in it.
My collection: [IMG]http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g115/31337_tom/IMG_4615_re_small.jpg[/IMG] Sorry for the crappy photo, it was taken with a little point n' shoot with bad lighting. All the good cameras had to be in the shot >_<
Where is your wooden fixture? Also is that a nikonos on the right?
So I bought some new (old) cameras.

Kodak stopped production of it in the 90s, but the film looked way older than 20 years. It looked at least 40 years old. I hope to get it developed soon. The brownie also had some 620 in it, and the coolest thing was the 8mm film camera. It still has 25 minutes to the roll in there. I'm so excited to get it shot and developed. [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] Just took a look, it's Kodacolor-X. Introduced in 1963 and discontinued in 1974. Holy shit, this roll is at least 37 years old. It's the same roll in my Brownie and it's the one I just took out of my Dualflex. This is so awesome.
[QUOTE=gaboer;34521916]Where is your wooden fixture? Also is that a nikonos on the right?[/QUOTE] There is a wooden desk in the far right corner of the picture :D And yes, thats a Nikonos body and 2 lenses in the bottom right. I havent used it in a little while unfortunately.
Today i got the Jim Buchanan lens mount conversion kit for my Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.2, so i went ahead and replaced the original mount (fully reversible though if i ever would like to use it on a Minolta body what i don't even have). I find it really small for a f/1.2 lens, it nearly matches a 50mm 1.4 or 1.8 by size. It does weigh about half a kilo though. Quick picture of the lens on my 40D: [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/leevmeister/6812349765/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7172/6812349765_0c1a3d6ac2_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/leevmeister/6812349765/]Gotta love f/1.2[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/leevmeister/]Leevmeister[/url], on Flickr Will post a better picture later on.
Alright, thanks fellas.

[QUOTE=Bigboy855;34530167]Thanks :smile: Would $20-$50 be a good deal for the lens?[/QUOTE] Well it looks like it's mint, and it's with box and lens shade, (so that adds value too) so i would reckon 60 usd maximum.

[QUOTE=frag4life;34531327]Well it looks like it's mint, and it's with box and lens shade, (so that adds value too) so i would reckon 60 usd maximum.[/QUOTE] Sweet, I got it for $53 USD with shipping. Thanks for helping frag4life and Trogdon.
