For SONY/MINOLTA users - Lens Plea




Sigma 70-300mm APO DG Macro in for repair with Sigma (UK) - stripped AF gears (I think). Naff quality materials (I think). Soft images @ longer zoom range . . what do you expect? Will it happen again?


Does anyone have or know of where I can blag, rent or borrow a mid-long range G-class zoom lens? For one day only (29th June). I will pay postage if anyone is willing to offer the loan of aforementioned glass.


F3 and GT Championships @ Thruxton. Would LOVE to pair my new A700 to a bogs dollox zoom lens.

No harm in asking apparently (or so the saying goes).

Just a thought.

Sorry don't have anything long..

Might be worth trading the Sigma for a Big Beercan??

They don't seem to sell for as much as the 70-200mm, but supposed to be OK for the money from what I've read.

There are a few places where you can rent, what lens are you ideally looking for? Something like a 300mm f/4?
Or are you just looking for sharp and long rather than fast?
