Is this thread meant for MC/MD mount lenses only, or AF alpha mount Minolta too?

That's a San Fernando Valley duck, famed for their ability to camouflage themselves as hard-shelled amphibians. They're believed to be a descendant of the long-extinct hermit crabatross.

Sebboh, your pic of your daughter is precious.
Phillip, I love that first shot of the pear blossoms (?) with the 100/2.5. I have an obsession with 100mm focal length, looks like I need to look for one of those too.

A couple model shots...58/1.2.

I'm selling my EF mount Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 that was adapted by Jim Buchanon himself and includes the hard to find original lens hood in great condition. It's in the Buy & Sell forum. I wanted to post one last photo in here taken with the lens.

Found the Minolta Auto W. Rokkor-HG 35/2.8 lens in an antique section of a photo store recently and got it for $30. It takes great photos with my Sony A7R!

Here is a shot from the Rokkor 58 f/1.2 at f/2. I like using the Rokkor at f/2 for this type of "landscape" shot a lot.

I started experimenting with manual lenses back in the winter of this year. My motivations then, were because I was cheap; I didn’t want to spend $2000 dollars per camera lens.

The first lens I purchased was a Minolta 50mm F1.4 (49mm filter size). I paid $35 dollars for it in excellent condition.

My first impression of this lens was that it took horrible pictures. After a time, I concluded that the lack of picture quality was from the Metabones adapter I was using. I swapped the Metabones for a Novoflex, and was pleased with the result.

I believe now, my Minolta 50mm F1.4, under bright light conditions, takes as good or better pictures than my $800 EF 35mm F1.2. The lens renders a different type of look to it, much like an old film camera, only much, much, sharper.

Now I own a Minolta 28mm, 50mm, 135mm, 200mm, and a 100mm~300mm zoom. My camera is a Sony A7r. My experience so far has been there is a commonality among these lenses, in that the first 2 apertures and the last 2 apertures won’t consistently produce quality pictures. You can get a very shallow depth of focus at low F numbers, sort of art type photograph, it you work at it hard enough at it, but nothing I would consider consistent. At F5.6 through F11 however, are the lens sweet spots. At F8, every Minolta lenses I own will produce wonderful “old school” looking photographs.

Steve, thanks for the comment. Love the look of your 400APO, what does the MFD work out to be on that? Flower shot looked decent magnification.


jgaster, ummm yeah. That is why this thread exists. Many of us are hooked on Rokkors or other old Minota lenses. What you describe about apertures is less a property of Minolta and more so of lenses in general.

If you paste the BBcode from flickr, it will display the image here rather than a text link. Pictures speak louder than words. Welcome to the party.
