    Minolta 200mm 2.8 APO High Speed lens & Sony LA-EA4 adapter

    Selling my near-mint Minolta 200mm ƒ2.8 APO High Speed lens. It's the latest model, with the focus hold button. It is in great condition and works superbly. Optically and mechanically excellent. There is just one minor bit of missing paint - see photo. (these lenses are famous for their paint coming off).

    As other forum members will no doubt attest, this is one of the finest telephoto lenses made. Sharp as a razor with heavenly bokeh.

    Includes caps and case.

    $780 including paypal fees and shipping to CONUS addresses.

    Also, a like-new Sony LA-EA4 adapter, which lets you use this lens (and other Sony/Minolta A-mount screw-drive lenses) on e-mount cameras. Perfect condition, in box and case.

    $270 including paypal fees and shipping to CONUS addresses.

    I could not stand it anymore. I caved in. I should not have sold mine in the first place but I thought I would have options with the new body , but turns out I really don't .

    So now I can brag about how good this lens is again. Lol

    OMG the vicious cycle continues.

    Guy sells his, convinces Mike to buy mine, Mike sells mine to Guy.

    Which of course means that you'll be buying it from Guy, eventually.

    There's a word that describes this relationship. It could be broken if you sold the lens to me.
