    Up for sale are:

    Lumix 45-200mm that simply isn't getting use. It's in great shape, glass is flawless. Comes in box with original hood and bag. $185 shipped in the US. SOLD

    AND

    Minolta MC Rokkor-X PG 1:1.4 50mm lens. A fun lens and a cheap way to get a fast portrait lens on the 4/3 system. Adapters can be found cheap all over ebay, if you don't already have one. Comes with a vintage Toshiba SL-1A filter, rear cap and front cap that is loose (I'm including it for protection during shipping). Glass is flawless and aperture blades are clean. $50 shipped in the US. SOLD

    I'll ship USPS Priority and you should have it in three days.

    Thanks for looking.

    Sample from this lens at 200mm, wide open at f/5.6. These are pushing the lens to its limit. You'll see a bit of vignetting in the second shot with the sky, but I consider both to be very good for a zoom at it's longest telephoto, wide open.

    P1040654-XL.

    Sample photos added for the 45-200mm. I think it's a really good lens. Other than a recent trip to China, however, I don't use the focal length often enough to keep it in my bag.

    Both shots are wide open at 200mm, probably the biggest challenge for this type of lens.

    The 45-200 has sold, but the Rokkor 50 1.4 is still available. This lens is fast and sharp with great colors. Minolta had (to my eyes) wonderful coatings on their lenses. I shot with Minolta for years, up through their digital 7D that I sold to move to m43 (for size/weight reasons). There is certainly a Minolta look. I would describe it as somehow nostalgic, a bit golden, great skin tones, which makes this an excellent portrait lens on an m43 camera.
