Found this at a local antiques mall/flea market. Was labeled $10, but when I got up to the register it was half off.
Lens is a 28mm-70mm, came with instructions for both the lens and the Konica Adaptall mount. Also included a UV/Hazefilter.
I can't find a thing wrong with it; looks near brand new to me. Lens mounted to my camera is wonderfully clean  and clear.
I know that I can get other mounts, or alternatively Fotodiox sells adapters for these lenses as well, so I should be able to use it on a lot of future cameras as well.
Lovely.

Thanks, I'll post them, but it will be a while. I have about 30 more exposures on that roll yet. It is older, expired Kodak Gold, so maybe not the best test. But I definitely plan to try this lens with the rest of that roll.

Mike,

So let me understand here.  You are using film for these pictures and not digital?  If so, I am more impressed.

Don't be. Not film. All the pics I've shared online so far are from point and shoot digitals. I have film being developed, and I'll share those if any of them are worthy. But the ones posted online are P&S digital shots. I do not own a DSLR, just old 35mm SLRs.
One of the reasons for the other thread I posted about digital cameras is so I can put those Minolta lenses and this lens to work in the digital medium.
But I like shooting both digital and film; just want to move to a DSLR so I can use my lenses.
BTW, I will be putting some film through an X700 using my "new" Minolta lenses hopefully this weekend. That should be loads of fun!
