Here are some I took with the Rokkor 58 f/1.2 after the ice storm in Toronto earlier this week.

Here are two of the bridal veil falls at Yosemite earlier this Spring during the runoff season. They were taken a day apart with the Rokkor 400mm f/5.6 APO.

Great photos. I'm looking forward to reviving my old Minolta lenses once I get my Sony A7.

Broke out the 58/1.2 again. It has been a while since I used it. I have been crazy to leave it in the cabinet.

I finally received my MD-NEX adapter. After some quick testing I'm willing to conclude that the MD 35-70 truly lives up to its reputation.

Here's a snap from moments ago @ f/5.6 (NEX-C3) after getting myself a can of dark Velkopopovicky and sitting by the fireplace.

I reckon this will be my primary walk-around when I eventually upgrade to an A7.

Still waiting for some good weather to break out the 75-150.

Thankyou, I made an RF cam by cutting up a tubular leg from a broken tripod, and used a retaining ring to thicken it up. Lots of fine sanding for the correct thickness. If this were to be used on a full-frame camera, the tube would have to be cut to leave just the portion left in silver to avoid vignetting. The M8 crop factor works out here.

"Vented Hoods" are usually not required on an SLR lens. Inexpensive "Fotodiox" Minolta to M-Mount adapter. total cost, $75 for lens and adapter. As per a 1976 Pop Photo test of 32 50mm lenses, The MC mount Minolta 50/1.4 was the best SLR lens in regard to center sharpness. This works out well for the M8.

Poor bird looks like someone snuck on him from behind and stuck a stick up his belly!

In the interest of this thread, I expect my A7 to arrive today, so I will also start posting some Minolta MD shots on this thread in the future.

Hi Derek,

Nice to see you got the 400 APO. I think you will like it a lot. I am very fond of mine. It is nice to see yours put to such good use.
