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.

I always wanted to have such a friend but they (ravens) are scarce and skittish in my country.

Gotta love your captures & PP, sebboh!

BTW, does anyone have Rokkor 58/1.2 lens profile for Adobe ARC?



I just got the fantastic MC Rokkor-PG 58mm f/1.2 with EF mount from the buy & sell forums on here. It's wonderful! I decided to make a custom lens profile using the Adobe Lens Profile Creator. It's available for LR and PS on the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader once Adobe approves it. I made the profile with my 5D mark III for both RAW and JPG formats. If you can't find it just PM me and I can send you the .lcp files directly.

The profile includes both the Geometric Distortion and Vignetting correction.

My lens has the AF confirm chip with EXIF identification of the lens so LR automatically detects the proper lens correction profile now. The chip only registers the maximum aperture value so unless you change the EXIF information for images shot at anything stopped down from f/1.2, it will overcorrect for the amount of vignetting. I used the LensTagger Exif Tool plugin for Lightroom (in conjunction with the ExifTool command line application) to change the recorded aperture on the images I know were stopped down so the appropriate amount of vignetting is corrected.

I know many people like the look of the distortion and vignetting but it's nice to have the option to correct if if you want. I'm sure the lens profile is transferrable to any other full frame camera. If someone wants to send me a Fuji X-Pro 1 I can profile that camera/lens combination too






Behold the Rokkor-PG 58mm f/1.2 with EF mount







It's been years since I've had to actually use two hands to work with a lens. One on the camera, the other on the focus and aperture rings.

That Rokkor 58 f/1.2 is surely a classic I need to hunt down at some point.

I thought I'd bring this thread back up, so here's a shot from today with the Sony A7 and MD 75-150 f/4, either wide open or @5.6. I also forgot to check the zoom setting, but I'm quite sure I was closer to the tele end, maybe 120mm (I should start taking movie notes with manual glass).

This was shot as JPEG and slightly processed, but the lens is definitely sharp and contrasty even wide open.
