the waxwing saw me put down my telephoto so he came over to mock me.
Michael, I feel lucky finding this pristine copy. Based on posted images I feel the lens is a keeper definitely worth extra pennies for its good shape.
sebboh; after using Zeiss infamous lens caps Minolta's snap-on tight cap is a revelation to me.
BTW, how does Rokkor 58/1.2 behaves without hood in bright(er) scenes?
i've heard so many complaints about those zeiss caps, but i don't think i've ever actually used one. i tend to be very concerned about protecting my glass when i'm not using the camera/lens and completely unconcerned when the camera is in my hand so i use generic metal screw caps for all my lenses.
regarding the rokkor – it's got a big hunk of glass up front and using it without a hood in bright light can definitely increase the veiling flare, but not enough that i find it worth while to carry a hood. it does surprisingly well at minimizing the other weird flare artifacts common when the sun is near or included in the frame for a lens it's speed and age. with my thoriated version of the lens i had issues with a red hot spot appearing when the sun was just out of the frame, but for some reason i've never seen that with the non-thoriated version i use now.
