these are so cheap, buy the lens and usually you geta free camera attached to it


why do i need a 50 mm f1.7 lens, nearly all the prosumer zoom lenses are around f4.5 or f5.6. this lens is 2 f stops faster which means instead of using a shutter speed of 1/30 n low light risking camera shake


2 faster shutter speeds means 1/125 is ok for hand holding. want lots of shallow depth of field or boken for portrature this is it


uses 49mm filters and hoods, lots of those in camera shop junk bins as… Read Full Review

“This Minolta 50mm f/1.7 35mm SLR lens is a very...”

Written on: 21/06/2002 by James Wong. (1 review written)

This Minolta 50mm f/1.7 35mm SLR lens is a very special lens to me. I uses this lens for very special photographs.

This is a very good learning tool and challenging as compared to wide angles or tele lens.

50mm f1.7 has a relative bright view as the aperture is wide, so the speed in AF is fast and can allow me to work in low lights… Read Full Review

“This must be one of the best buys I've ever made. ”

Written on: 18/12/2000 by Christiaan. (1 review written)

This must be one of the best buys I've ever made.
Autofocus is very fast and quiet, Sharpness compares very well

the sharpest lenses around, and it's cheaper than most of the
junky zoom lenses!!

There's really nothing I can complain about regarding this
lens… Read Full Review

Fair review truthful giving his/her views seems like an honest answer, however would be better if review stated what lens was used for also how long the lens was owned and what other lenses it is compared with,never the less seems happy with lens and review could sway someone into buying the lens
