    I'm looking at some used lenses at B&H photo for my sony A330.

    I've narrowed it down to these 4 lenses. It will be my first telephoto lens for this camera.


    Used Tamron Zoom Telephoto AF 80-210mm f/4.5-5.6 AF78M700 B&H

    Used Konica Minolta 100-200mm f/4.5 Maxxum AF Autofocus Lens B&H

    Used Tokina Zoom Tele 28-210mm f/3.5-5.6 Autofocus Lens B&H

    Used Konica Minolta 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 Maxxum AF Xi 2619610 B&H

    thanks in advance

    I've decided to buy used maxxum lenses cause I'm on a tight budget. Have you used them with good results?
    Until now I've just been using my alpha 18-55mm kit lens.

    I have a number of used Minolta lenses. The 28-135mm has exceptional IQ.
    The Minolta Maxxum 70-210mm f/4.0 beercan lens also has very high quality, the most recommended telephoto zoom lens. Minolta AF 70-210 F4 (beercan) 2555-110 lens for Sony Alpha - Minolta camera mount
    The Minolta 28-85mm is also a good lens. Minolta AF 28-85 F3.5-4.5 2552-100 lens for Sony Alpha - Minolta camera mount

    You can also try KEH for used: Minolta Maxxum Zoom Lenses - KEH.com

    I have:
    Maxxum 50mm f/1.7
    Maxxum 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5
    Maxxum 28-135mm f/4-4.5
    Maxxum 75-300mm APO f/4.5-5.6
