I am going to do a sunset shoot next week, but I never shot a sunset style yet.
Any tips?

Lots of strobe power and a high aperture, like f9 and 1/200 SS and ISO 100

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.

Can I get an opinion on this lens?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160539678215&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT


it's 85mm but since I'm not shooting with a full frame the effective length is
127.5mm +or-

- Is it worth the $ to buy it?

- better to save and get something made for 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

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

I have an adapter, been using SLR lenses.

Is there something about this specific lens that makes you think otherwise?
Nope, I just completely forgot about the adapter xD! (I just copy and pasted that from the ebay link xD)

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

I don't know anything about Sony. Always been shooting with Canon since I started.

Anyone have new portraits to post? My next concept shoot is Sunday
