Good glass is the most important equipment in the serious photographer's kit. If you shoot with Minolta Maxxum or Sony Alpha camera bodies, here is an opportunity to dramatically upgrade to professional level lenses at a fraction of the cost of new! These lenses are all from the Sigma APO EX line, which is their top-of-the-line pro-level gear. As such, these lenses are NOT the digital-specific versions, which can ONLY be used on crop-sensor digital bodies. These lenses will work with the older and current crop sensors in the Maxxum 7D and the Sony A300/500/700 series, but more importantly, they will work with NO vignetting on the newer A850/900 full frame DSLRs, as well as any of the full frame film cameras. In short, these are the best lenses for the money you can get for Minolta / Sony cameras, with full compatibility across the entire line.

Turn my misfortune into a Merry Christmas for you or your favorite Minolta/Sony shutterbug. On my most recent photo adventure, a freak gust of wind toppled my tripod, damaging my Minolta 7D camera body and primary lens. I've already started making the change to Canon, so I'm now liquidating all of my Minolta gear at less than 50% of street prices. All of these components are in excellent shape, no major damage to glass, with normal (minor) signs of wear on the lens caps and bodies.

I also have the two damaged pieces available for sale, as well as my old backup film rig.
