where to buy used lens

Unread postby radiochris » Thu Dec 06, 2007 5:10 pm

Advice needed on suppliers of secondhand (used) minolta lens in the UK. I'm looking at upgrading some of my glass and wonder if there are any dealers members of this forum would recommend? And conversley any to avoid?

Cheers,

Chris

I'd recommend Ffordes ... they're in Scotland too :)

Agreed.

Also Mifsud in Brixham, Devon, I have bought quite a bit from them, but not SH. They once used to have much Minolta stuff.

Always conduct a search for Minolta SLR on eBay. Chances are you'll find someone selling off the body with lenses for less than the same lens selling separately.

Plenty of Minolta glass to be had there. Just bought myself a Minolta 28-85mm AF Macro (and others). Cheap enough.
