Here's the Rokkor 35mm f/2.8 wide open. I like it quite a lot but I don't think it the best 35mm I've ever used.



1/40s, f/2.8, ISO100, GH1, Handheld









1/15s, f/2.8, ISO800, GH1, Handheld

Here are a few with my Rokkor 35mm f/1.8. All shot on a Canon 50D, so really more like a normal lens. I really like this little lens (I have the MD version which is quite small).

There's shots comparing the Rokkor 21/2.8 with the Oly 21/2 somewhere around the Alt forum. I forget who is was, Lex maybe that had both? (I have both too but only shoot film.)

sebboh:
this is a funky shot, great. for me the minolta is the best 24er...

cavewalker:
i thought my 35/1,8 would be enough, but the 28 is awsome ...
was the converting difficult? which version do u have.

btw is there a minolta 24mm 2.0 ?

Oly made a nice one though. (24/2). Minolta had the cool 24/2.8 VFC also.

There is no Minolta 2/24.
The conversion of the Rokkor 2/28 was not so difficult. You have to unscrew the silver Minolta mount. File down the back ca. 1.2 mm and glue a thin Prakticar-EOS Adapter on the back.

These are some pretty nice shots of the WA Rokkers...

Different than I thought they might look but still pretty good!

Thanks for posting these guys!

when i got the MD 24/2.8 i certainly did not think i would be using it for bugs and flowers much. i really like it's bokeh though, and that combined with it's excellent mfd performance and my inability to get out someplace with landscape that interests me has resulted in flowers and bugs being my main use for it.

another such shot:

looks very nice! Excellent composition!

I like debuggerus's B&W too... pretty sweet.

decided to try something new with my MD 24/2.8 today stopping it down. will have to shoot a little more with it to decide how i feel about it's stopped down performance. it's definitely awesome up close, i'm not sure about infinity though. i think most of these are at f/8, though some may be at f/5.6:




















one of those waves soaked me and my camera, no ill effects from it yet though (knock on wood).
i can't not post at least one shot from the lens wide open:

Fantastic, sebboh. Where is this place? it looks awfully cold.
By the way, the rokkor 24/2.8 has been the number one landscape choice of the minolta fan it should be very good at infinity.
