Catch Up Post (Series 2, Number 3): The 135 STF

Yeah, I am catching up at about the same rate I should be posting. I am busy. Work has me going all over the place and I am working on multiple projects. Meanwhile my kids are starting school again. Excuses are lame, I know.

A few months back I posted about wanting either the Minolta 200mm f/2.8 or the Sony or Minolta 135mm f/2.8 [T4.5] STF lens. I opted for the Minolta 200mm f/2.8 High Speed APO G lens with no regrets.

A couple weeks before I went to Austria, I found an open-box copy of the Sony 135 STF at a price I couldn’t pass up. Should I have spent the money I didn’t have? Frankly, I don’t care. This lens is amazing.

The results speak for themselves, don’t they?
