MINOLTA 50MM F/1.7 CROSSED X

Another lens that I would definitely miss is the 50mm Prime lens!

Minolta Maxxum 50mm f/1.7 crossed x version

It's in the good hands now, sold it to one of my good friend - Keith.
Hope that you will take good care of it and make sure you use it to the fullest and capture your best moment with it.

Ever since I bought my first dSLR back in Feb 08' I've always wanted the bokeh feel pictures.
It was then I put in all my efforts to get this really really good lens, psst it's a metal prime with AF that was built in 1985!

Imagine that.

Great for indoor low light conditions.

The Maxxum Crossed X version, really rare! haha

The focusing is really smooth, the coating of the lens is perfect, and of course, the aperture blades are snappy and smooth.

For the size and price, I'm very satisfied with the performance, the sharpness and also the speed!
