Minolta 100mm f/2.0

What happen to the Legendary Minolta 100 f/2.0 on the Alpha 900? I am not as pleased with this lens as I was with the 700, etc.

Summer visitors would never get the same sunset. Autumn colours are great in the mountain towns.
Forgot, I also have my 50mm f1.4 with me. Frightening thing is that every shot from this looks SO much sharper than anything else even on the camera. Using my EeePC to communicate, not yet transferred or viewed any but shooting raw for economy and probably can not without downloading new GIMP/UFraw stuff.
