70 – 210 lens

The other day i found a Minolta lens at a local pawn show, it was a nice looking 70 – 210 (Not the beer can) so i get it home and i hook it up to the Camera and the Auto Focus did not work. you could hear it trying to but the servo in the lens was not activating the barrel of the lens :( talk about a let down I thought I had found a steal at 35$ out the door but sadly i had to take it back and got my money back, just goes to show you should always have your camera with you so if you run in to a deal like this you can TEST IT before you buy it;) Lesson Learned.

    Valuable lesson to learn. I’ve always been tempted to buy a lens at a pawnshop, but haven’t been brave enough. Thanks for taken the bullet for all of us and I’m happy they refunded your money :)
