Thanks helimat. I know, but it's not an operation that I would want to perform myself. I don't feel any great need for it though as I can get it sharp at infinity by stopping down and extending the DOF. Plus, I don't exactly intend to use it as a classic landscape lens.

It's the rubber grip version, so it's not radioactive

That's what I figured when you mentioned the wide open halos... My first (rubber grip) was similar, sharp wide open but halos on anything bright. The one I have now (metal, radioactive apparently) does not suffer from this at all.
At any rate, it is certainly working pretty well for you it seems.
As for the operation, I just sat the lens upside down, marked where I wanted to trim, unscrewed the retainer and filed it on the bench well away from the lens. But again, it is certainly working for you the way it is.

Helimat, I did not know that the retainer can be removed. How did you unscrew it?

Damn another thread to tempt me Love these photos and rendering of the Rokkor lenses.
Wow....Great shots everyone!!! This thread has just caught my eye.
Luka, love these last set of shots.

Denoir: Just as I expected. Excellent shots! My compliments!
I also enjoy LoCa absence wide open. It's replaced my 35-70/3.4 for now until I can tame the beast!..

Thanks Charles, Dmitri!

The bokeh the 58/1.2 produces is really something special while at the same time it's definitely no Zeiss in terms of micro contrast. The color rendering is quite nice though. I knew that Minolta had a very good reputation when it came to colors and it is really a justified reputation.

The Ragn-sells cart is rather detail rich though. For the love of god, how ddid you get that thick DOF even WO? It would be a miracle if I got the half of the sign sharp at 1.2!!

Well, the distance was perhaps 2 meters so I had a bit of DOF. Tripod + live view for critical focus and I tried not to overdo the angle to the surface. I focused on the middle of the sign.

Here is the same thing but from a bit further away with subsequently larger DOF, but with a greater angle:

Hmm...I just "spoke to DOF master".. and the dof at around 2 metres is about 0.08m on the FF sensor..it's somewhat shallower on APS-C (0.05)

The shot I posted earlier:






Taken at 1.2 (WO) at around 1.5m (if I remember it correctly) and already the rail is losing a lot of sharpness...

I just can't get my head around the physics of it..

Edit: Can't post links to gallery...driving me f***ing nuts!!!

The numbers given by "DOF master" are very approximate and very often way off. Individual lens model variation is quite large. For instance most for most of my Zeiss ZE lenses DOF table figures do not even come close to reality. I'm not sure yet how the 58/1.2 performs in relation to the DOF table values.

In the first shot of the container, looking at the full image, I'd estimate DOF was about 10-15 cm.

That is quite possible.
To me personally DOF looks at around 20-30cm, but it's still way off DOF Master estimation anyway.
I guess I need to do few more tests, which is enjoyable with Rokkor anyway..
Here I believe I shot at 1.8 or 2.0 (2.3?)

By looking at your processed scale I'd say more like 1 or 2 meters. Well, that's what it looks like.

Same with Krosavcheg's sleeper... It seems to start about 60 or 70 cm this side of his knee and end just shy of his navel. That's like 1.5 to 2 meters.

Bif: Looks like I am coming to Aichi next month! We need to shoot.. I might even bring the unconverted Rokkor 58/1.2 for you to try out, if you promise to be nice..

It's all unceratin atm. There will be Dashi Matsuri in Hekinan (the massive cart pushing along the streets while drinking excessive amounts of alcohol).
You could come over with and shoot some fun action?

They won't start until saturday afternoon, and perhaps friday night should be ok for boozing..

Here are the shots from last year's one:

That statement is incorrect I am afraid; The DOF with a lens would be regardless of the sensor format given the distance, focal length and aperture stay the same. So a wide open Rokkor @ 2 meters distance would have the same DOF on a full frame or a crop sensor, and even m4/3's for that matter.
