yay, 2/28 party. I got mine ages ago, but there was some fungus inside it so I took it to the side with the intent to fix it later which I never did.
So when I packed my photobag this evening I saw it and decided to give it a chance and I am really positively surprised how much I like 28mm.


28mm is one of my favorite focal lengths, prefer it over 35mm.

Hi guys, I just acquired the D55NC hood for my Rokkor 58mm 1.2 lens and I was wondering what I can use as a lens or a hood cap. Obviously I don't want to unscrew the hood each time to put on a cap and I kinda want to have the front of the lens covered when not in use even though I have a filter on. If anyone knows what I can use let me know. Thanks in advance! (I will post some pictures taken with the lens as soon as I get a chance )

I have a center pinch 67mm cap that works great. It should fit just right.

Thanks for the quick reply. I assume it will work as a hood cap or would it go like halfway inside the hood? Do you also have the D55NC hood? (not the more common D55NA, which is for the 1.4 lens)

I have the D55NA, which is the same diameter and just a little longer. I actually prefer it as it doesn't cause vignetting, but for either lens hood a 67mm lens cap will work as a hood cap.

Hey hey all,

Recently I've started to get into Minolta lens. Just got a 35MC version not too long ago.

Now i'm looking to get a 85mm or 135mm. These lenses are cheap and good!

My question is which one to get? It seems the 85mm f1.7 or f2 is more expensive compared to the 135mm?

Also for the 135mm f2.8 with 4 blades seems the way to go? Anyone can chip in into this?

I'm trying to find one in eBay but its pretty hard, what should i put for the keyword?

Many thanks!

all the versions of the 135/2.8 are pretty good, i've heard the later 4 element version is a bit sharper and certainly lighter weight, but i doubt it makes that much difference iq wise.

there are no cheap minolta 85mm lenses unfortunately. i find 85mm to be a much more useful focal length. i really like the 85/1.7, but it's not 5x as good as the price might suggest, it's just a different kind of lens.

the 85/2 i don't have any experience with, but haven't been super impressed with the images i've seen.

Thanks for the reply Sebboh! I appreciate it.

Do you have any good recommendation for a cheap 85mm? Many thanks!

the best cheap 85mm is probably the samyang/rokinon/bower/etc 85/1.4. they can be found in the $200-$250 range and have good sharpness from wide open and very smooth bokeh. the main weaknesses are loCA and that stopped down performance isn't quite as good as some others.

there are also a number of 85/1.8s from various manufacturers that can be found a little cheaper and are all pretty decent performers. not really sure why the rokkor 85s are so much more expensive when rokkors are usually cheaper on average at other focal lengths.
