Minolta AF 50mm f/1.7 is a discontinued lens with autofocus that was produced by Minolta for the company's A-mount from 1985[1] through 2006. It is still in use today by users of digital and film SLRs by Minolta (later Konica-Minolta) and Sony. The relatively large maximum aperture (f/1.7) allows the photographer to take shots indoors even when operating at ISO 100 - 200. A lot of reviews talk about this product, and they say that it is a very good lens. "I don't think it is an expense, I think it is an investment"[2]
