    I've bought Minolta MD Lenses for 25$ before.
    I am not too familiar with that lens but I know that for a Canon EF Mount 85mm f1.8 lens, it is around 400$ for a lens with a superb review. I'd buy digital.

    Note: This lens will works with 35mm SLR film camera NOT digital SLR camera.

    unless you have a 35mm SLR camera :)
    Canon 85mm 1.8 is usually 375-475 on-line

    I have an adapter, been using SLR lenses.

    Is there something about this specific lens that makes you think otherwise?

    MD to EOS Adaptors are only 35 bucks on ebay. A great investment because MD lenses are usually cheap as dirt!

    Nope, I just completely forgot about the adapter xD! (I just copy and pasted that from the ebay link xD)

    Oppps!!!

    I've got a Minolta X-7A (with battery grip) and 80-200mm lens with 2x teleconverter that I'll trade off

    I got rid of my 35mm stuff, kept some lenses, which is why I'm shooting with a SONY DSLR.

    So I'm looking at this:

    SONY 100mm F2.8
