A7 + Minolta Rokkor 35mm F2.8 or Minolta Rokkor 58mm F1.4, was switched between them a couple of times and lost track of which was used for what.

35mm

Probably 58mm

Hi all, I just bought 3 Rokkor lenses and adapter for my A7. 50/1.4, 135/2.8 and 45/2 "pancake" . Could you recommend any ultrawide lens and telephoto lens? And maybe fisheye?
btw great photos I found in this thread,I hope I'll add some soon too. Still waiting for adapter.

For telephoto I have the 400 f/5.6 APO and it is a very good lens. It is reasonably sharp (but you can find other lenses that are sharper) and has fantastic colour with no colour fringing that I have ever seen. For the focal length it isn't that big or that heavy. If 400mm is too long you might also look at the 200 f/2.8, which is reputed to be an excellent lens. Neither of these lenses are as cheap as the ones you bought, but compared to their AF counterparts they are still a good bargain.

For ultrawide there is a 17 f/4 and a 21 f/2.8 as well as a 16 f/2.8 fisheye. I haven't used any of these lenses and don't know how they stack up against others but they are out there. I did own the 24 f/2.8 at one point and it is very sharp in the centre and excellent for close up work, but the corners don't sharpen up until f/11. It has a bit of CA, but it isn't too bad. I thought it was a very nice lens.

Just bought a 58 f/1.4 to use with my E-PM2. Haven't quite gotten the hang of focusing down yet, especially at large apertures but my goodness do I love how this lens renders! Definitely a little low on contrast, but already created an LR5 preset to take care of that. Here's some samples from walking around near work






  E-PM2    1/640s    200 ISO    0.0 EV  






  E-PM2    1/800s    200 ISO    0.0 EV  






  E-PM2    1/1250s    200 ISO    0.0 EV  






  E-PM2    1/1000s    200 ISO    0.0 EV  






  E-PM2    1/1600s    200 ISO    0.0 EV

Just got the 58mm 1.2 today, here is one of my few successful shots at 1.2!
Not the easiest focusing on the 5DmkIII (except from LV), the 5Dc seems to be much better, then again wearing glasses doesn't help me either... some adjustments in C1.

Can't believe my last post here was more than 3 years ago, haha. 5D is currently being fixed, so I bought a 30D to hold me over in the mean time.

30D + 35/1.8 Randoms





30D + 21/2.8 at Muir Woods for Mother's Day

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

MC/MD lenses only. the a-mount thread is for alpha lenses or alpha bodies with any lenses.

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.
