Sceptic, love the rich colors in the leaf shot! I have never seen a Rokkor macro in stores. Must have been a rares find. Does it hit 1:1?

Bob, amazing 3D and sharpness in the bike shot. I would have guessed both a tighter aperture and perhaps even a different lens.

Thanks! Itīs the MC Macro Rokkor-QF 50 mm 3.5, found half way down this page:
http://minolta.rokkor.de/normallenses.htm#50mm 3.5 Macro

As most 50-ish macros of that era, it goes to 1:2 natively, but came with an extension tube for 1:1 as well as a reversing ring for mounting on bellows. Sadly, the filter thread is dented, so the reversing ring will do me no good (for that lens, anyway)

I just received my M-Rokkor 40mm f/2 CLE. What a really nice small lens! While I wait for the a7R, I tried it out on the NEX-5N

I have been using the 58 1.2 with my Fuji X-E1 & the MD mount speed booster, with very good results. Here are a few recent shots:









Really like this combo, but it is a little bit on the heavy side at around 1kg.

Very nice. I love my Rokkor 58 F/1.2 I doubt I would ever get rid of it. It's just hard to find a good copy at least IMO.

Bob, clarity on first and especially last shot is just incredible. Will that lens work on SLRs with conversion, or is it an obligate mirrorless? I have not herd of it before.

Jim - It's an M-Mount Minolta version of a Summicron C so I'm pretty sure it's Leica and mirrorless only. I hadn't heard of ti before either until I saw a couple of posts here and in some the a7/a7R threads just recently. The sharpness and clarity in those shots made go hunting. There are some on ebay and one of those ended getting posted here. There are some threads that talk about the regular version (serial numbers on the inside of the lens) and the CLE version (serial number on the lens barrel) the latter being multi-coated and consider the better of the two.

I hope to give it a better workout today. I just posted one in the NEX thread as well.

Cheers,

Bob

Due to the short registration the Minolta 40mm f2 M-Rokkor lens will only serve on M series cameras, mirrorless, and Ricoh GXR like (which is mirrorless) type cameras. It will cover FF for which it was designed to cover but on film.

Having access to this kind of lens is one of the many advantage to the mirrorless cameras.

Bob,

You beat me as I was typing.

Rich- it will cover full frame on mirrorless digital, correct?

Bob,

Yes. Martin posted some images in the WA A7 and A7r thread with the Leica C 40mm f2 Summicron (the Minolta 40mm f2 M-Rokkor is almost identical):

Thank you both. Contemplating an a7/a7r and now have an idea of what to slap on front. Bummed that several M lenses appear to smear colors across the sensor on those.

First outing with recently acquired Rokkor 50/1.4,49mm.Fine lens.It is as good as the MD Rokkor 55mm with a tad more saturated colors compared to the 50/1.4 MC PG.
