    Hey guys

    I've got my hands on a nice Minolta XD-7 (XD-11 in US).

    I'm going to look to use it for some creative shots, and well mainly for fun.

    Does anyone recommend some good lenses to get for the camera? I've had a quick look, and seen that the second hand lenses are quite cheap.

    Any recommendation, from primes to fisheye lenses.

    Thanks :)

    Congrats! I used the Minolta system for a number of years. Never much liked the AF side, but the the older cameras worked well. Watch out for battery drain ... Those old Minoltas could eat batteries. Minolta also made a very fast 50mm lense - f/1.4. They also made a sweet 250mm reflex telephoto. Other than that I think their line up was pretty standard. Luck.
