Apropos of nothing at all except that I was tidying up the office/study this morning ( overdue ) and waiting for the latest downpour ( underdue ) to clear and got to thinking ( OK rambling ) what were the best selling Minolta lenses. This was triggered by the "deathbed confession" from Minolta that they had sold 16 million lenses. Actually if this referred to AF lenses I am surprised that it was so few over some 21 years. What do you think was the best selling prime and the best selling zoom over the 21 years ? Not your favourite lens ( we can go through that another day ) but the best selling. Based on I what I have seen used, for sale in camera shops and on good old fleabay I would suggest :- PRIME 50mm f1.7 ( maybe because it was the original "kit" lens ). ZOOM 70-210mm f4 ( beercan if you must ).
