Description

My conditions: For items which don’t include shipping (usually the cheap stuff), shipping is usually $20 - $25 (to Canada or the USA) so buy a bunch of stuff to make it worthwhile. I accept most payment methods. All prices are negotiable and I'm happy to do package deals. If any of my prices don’t reflect what everyone else is asking please PM and so I can fix it. I like to keep communications quick so if I don’t hear back from you 48 hours after I send a PM/email than I reserve the right to sell the item to a different buyer. I have positive feedback on Fourthirdsphoto, FredMiranda, Pentax forums and GetDPI as Albino_BlacMan and on eBay as ctp046.
I’ll sell the camera and 2 lenses as a package for $215 if anyone’s interested (essentially you get the camera for free). If not prices are listed below.
Minolta 24-105/3.5-4.5 D - $150 Shipped
Glass: Excellent. Clean and clear with no scratches fungus or haze. Minimal internal dust
Aperture: Smooth and snappy. No oil, no wear that I can see
Focus/Zoom: Both are smooth throughout the entire range
Autofocus: Fast and accurate
Cosmetics: Not bad, not great. The grips are either graying or need to be cleaned again (probably the latter but I did give them a scrub with a toothbrush). Minor scuffs all around. Not a collector’s piece but nothing major.
Accessories: Come with front and rear caps and a lens hood (which shows some rub marks)
Minolta 75-300/4.5-5.6 -$65 Shipped
Glass: Just like the other ones. Clean and clear with no scratches fungus or haze. Minimal internal dust
Aperture: Smooth and snappy. No oil, no wear that I can see
Focus/Zoom: Both are smooth throughout the entire range
Autofocus: Fast and accurate
Cosmetics: We’ll say this one is user. The grips are blacker than the other Minolta lenses I have but the silver paint didn’t wear well so it shows a bunch of black specs where the paint rubbed off.
Accessories: Come with front and rear caps, lens hood (which shows some rub marks) and an Optex UV filter.
Minolta Maxxum 7D - $50 Shipped AS IS
Shutter: Seems to work fine. I haven’t tested this thing rigorously but everything I’ve shot with it came out nicely. NOTE: See below as the camera has the black frame issue
Autofocus: Surprisingly fast and accurate considering its age
Viewfinder: Clean and clear
Functions: I recently discovered that this camera has the black frame issue. If you turn it on sometimes the rear screen doesn't light up and the shutter won't fire. You have to take the battery out and then turn it and it will work fine. As such I'm decreasing the price to $50 Shipped. I haven’t tested this camera super thoroughly and I don’t plan to. It came with a bunch of Minolta stuff I bought (some of which I’m keeping, some of which is for sale here). The camera is being sold AS IS. I have taken some test shots and all the basic functions (aperture, meter, shutter speed, autofocus, ISO, WB) seem to work well.
Cosmetics: Rough (another reason I’m selling it AS IS). The biggest thing is that a strap lug is missing. I don’t know how the original owner managed that but it’s not there anymore. Next thing is that is shows quite a few rub marks all over the place. The leather from the rear grip is also missing. The plastic around the eyecup is cracked (I assume this can be replaced). Anyway it’s overall in rough shape. These usually go for $200 + shipping on eBay so I’ve taken the condition into account when pricing it.
Accessories: Hot shoe cover, extra battery, charger, screen protector, 1 GB SanDisk CF card.
