    Can anyone out there help/advise me, I'm in a bit of a quandary, I'm hoping to come into a bit of dosh in the next few months, which, I was thinking I could convert into a Minolta 85mm f1.4G D lens, the Minolta 300mm f4 or Sigma 300mm f4.
    The question is, if I decide on the 300mm option, is the Minolta lens significantly superior over the Sigma or is the difference negligible? Whichever lens I end up going for, it will be fitted to a Dynax 7 and a Dynax 600 Si.

    Quite a while has passed from the original post. So here is my opinion if it,s not too late.
    I don't have noone of the lenses, but from what i have heard from other people, the Minolta 300mmG lens is supperior and a very excellent lens. Sigma
    lens is also very good and less expensive than the minolta one. So i all depends on your budget. I don't think you would be disappointed with any of them.
    85f/1.4G is a celebrated lens. If you do a lot of portrait, this is a very good lens, but not the only option: There are any other options most of them less expensive than this one: 100f/2.8D macro lens, 100f/2, 100f/2.8soft focus,
    135f/2.8. ALll are excellent lens. On a similar situation, i evetually went for
    100Dmacro which is also a celebrated les. But i do more macros than portraits.
    I have seen some people use this lens as their main portrait lens.
