Hi all, I bought a film SLR camera after I graduated college about three years ago. I am something of a traveler and enjoy photography, but there are a lot of things I don't know about the more technical aspects of taking good pictures. I recently took a continuing ed photography class and have been thinking about buying some kind of additional lens for the camera. First of all, the camera is a Minolta Maxxim 5 and from a little internet research I have done, it looks like Sony bought Minolta SLR cameras? So I guess I need to know what brand of lenses I can use for this camera as well as what you experienced people would suggest for someone who wants to buy their first additional lens. I want to be able to zoom in closer on people and objects from farther away. As you can probably tell, I'm an amateur, but I want to have a little more versatility, which is why I am thinking about getting another lens. If anyone has advice about this camera, lenses or anything else, please pass it on. Thanks so much!
