Have to agree with with Kokusai, Jack! WOW! Jack, how would you compare the 58 and the 50 Lux stopped down? I actually have a 58 1.2 Rokkor sitting in my bag...the only problem is, it's been converted to Sony Alpha mount, so I have to send it to Jim to have it reconverted!!

Thanks Kokusai & Gregg.
Rokkor 58/1.2 is kind of a new lens to me. I got it influenced mostly by sebboh and few others on this thread and just recently started using it on Sony A7R. My first impressions are more than positive. This is a legendary lens, mostly shown wide open, but I do recall sebboh posted a comparison between few 50mm lenses including Rokkor and Leica Summilux 50 at various distances and apertures. Not sure what versions, but it was about a year ago and you should search for it as it contains interesting material.

Thanks Jack...I'll search for it! I used an older version a few years ago, but now I have a newer version, and can't wait to convert it and use it!

Nice Peire!
Great but hard to find little gem.
How do you like it so far?
Pretty sharp 2.8 to f8.

I like it very much.Sharp from f2.8 and good enough wo.Minimal smearing in the very corners.

28mm Rokkors in general do very well on the A7.Even the old 28/2.8 MC W.55mm,which wasn't that impressive with the NEXes is sharper across the frame,without significant falloff towards the edges.Lower pixel density does miracles.

I was out with the Sony A7r and the Minolta MD 135/2.
Here are some results:



135mm 1/160s f2 ISO 100





135mm 1/400s f2 ISO 100





135mm 1/1000s f2 ISO 100





135mm 1/500s f-- ISO 100


Bigger sized versions are on my flickr stream.

Beautiful shots. I especially like the third one. I searched for this lens for about 2 years and was never able to find one. In the end I gave up, but your shots make me wish I didn't.

Hmmm,I still don't have this MD 135/2.It looks like an excellent piece of glass.Similar to Zeiss 135/2 C/Y.

Meanwhile,MC W. Rokkor HH does very well on the A7

At f8 it is tack sharp across the frame with no corner issues and vivid colours






The lens is able to separate object from the background






Has a nice oof rendition for a wa lens and is not prone to flare

Nice shots Piere. I really liked the 28 f/2 when I had it (I had the MD with the 49mm filter). Here are some old shots with a 5D classic. It was wonderful on that camera, but the new Sony cameras are a lot more demanding. It is nice to see that it may hold up well.

Steve,I never dared to convert Minolta MD lenses into Canon EF mount.I just don't have enough skills and patience..With the advent of FF ILCes the problem has solved out by itself.

My copy of the late MC W.Rokkor 28/255mm is very good on the A7 though and I'm gonna keep it for good.

I have converted a couple of the easier ones to convert (58 f/1.2 and 400 f/5.6 APO), but the 28 f/2 with its floating element is beyond what I am capable of doing. I had Jim Buchanan convert mine. He does an excellent job. If he still does it I would recommend him highly to anyone who still want to do a conversion, but as you say with FF ILCs becoming available there is likely to be less need for this sort of service.

+1 ^^^
Jim did an excellent job converting both my md and mc-w versions of 28/2 to EF. I still have both and they are of such a relatively small size that I always thought they would be great to use on a mirrorless camera.
Waiting for the A8r with IBIS and quieter shutter.
