Item Description
I am selling my most loved Minolta Lens:

Minolta Maxxum 28-135 4-4.5 AKA "Secret Handshake" in very good condition.

This lens will fit all Sony Alpha full frame (A850, A900) as well as the APC ones (A100 - A700, etc).

This lens gives an amazing color rendering. It is very sharp. This lens sells in the Auction site for $350+. This is one of my last Minolta lenses that I have. My cousin did not want it since she is looking for a Fish Eye one.

The lens is clean, no scratches in the glass and no fungus. The blades are snappy and free of oil. Comes with generic Front cover and original rear cover.
I am including a semi soft lens pouch.

The only flaw that I can tell is that the scale window has a crack, but this does not affect the IQ. See picture 2 and 5 for detail.

Paypal fees are extra. If paying via Paypal as Gift, no fees.

For those not familiar with this lens, see a review/history here. It was designed by the same team of the famous G series. Although this lens is not G series, it is very sought after.

A900: Zeiss 2.8/24-70mm, Minolta AF4-4.5/ 28-135, 2.8/28-70G, 2.8/70-200G @ 70mm
