Hello people :smile: First post there, but I've been around for a couple of months looking for suggestions and learning from you. Thank you for sharing the know-how Now to business: I'm ready to prune some of my old glass collection (see signature), and buy a couple more lenses, and I would appreciate your feedback. After buying the Minolta MD 35-70mm, a couple of the lenses were made redundant (yep... the 35-70 is sharp enough to replace a couple of primes). I'm planning to keep the 35-70 and the 135, and that's pretty much all I know: - I'd like to have some zooms like the ones I have but better quality (the 60-300 has a good range and decent quality, but it's too bulky. The 80-200 has a good size and so-so range, but the quality is not that good) - I'd like to have a fast 28mm for low light portraits, but the Sears is not up to the task - and I'm needing a macro lens I like to take pictures of people (usually indoors), love macro photography (i.e. flowers) and like nature shots (i.e. birding). Budget is tight, and I would like to stay on the Minolta realm. So... any suggestions? BTW: I need to replace my E-PM1 as well. I like it -mostly-, but the lack of some means to focus manual lenses is too much. Is the focus peaking of some of the other Olys enough to work with?
