Plum in the Sun

Loving the Sony Alpha and my Sigma 50mm macro. Nothing like a prime lens for this sort of thing.

I agree. IMO, Minolta lenses were always the best but underrated, even back in the 1970s when I got my first Minolta. Somehow I feel like a traitor for going Nikon in my DSLR, instead of Minolta (or later Sony).

This flower is a prime example of the great sharpness and clarity a Minolta/Sony lens can produce.
