that is crazy @sculptormic.

I tried to orient this properly for like 60 seconds before my brain gave up. That is quite a dense sculpture. Thank you very much for sharing.

Thank you Taran.
Big scrabyards are always impressive. In the old days I used to go there more often.

What kind of resolution they do dispute, I wonder, Ebookman. Looks like some yoga/health thing

Isn't that Minolta a nice zoomlens!

I am not sure, but there is no connection with defensive martial arts..I hope. Yes, I am continually amazed by this Minolta zoom lens. It is the only zoom I use and it is as sharp as a prime. I am going to try it on a Turbo Booster and see if I can get an available light, f/2.5 zoom lens with a very useful true 35-70 range.

i finally finished and am happy with my conversion of the g28 into a rokkor helicoid, so i had to shoot some bench shots to properly inaugurate it.

i should probably find a duck too just to be on the safe side.

Congratulations! Outstanding. I followed your progress, all the time wondering what was the resale value of the accumulated parts of the two lenses. I am in no way tempted to follow in your steps, but I admire your achievement all the more for just having thrown away a Minolta lens I had managed to impair beyond hope.

oh no! what happened to the minolta lens?

as far as resale value goes i spent $15 on the rokkor, a bit more than $300 for the g28, and about $10 for raw materials. the entire thing conversion was non-destructive so both lenses could be fully restored if i were ever inclined (anybody need a g28 body minus optics?).

here's a couple quick shots of the final lens:










i'll post some pics of how the aperture connection was made in the lens modification thread later.

and a couple non-bench shots with the lens:

Yea, that is sweet and I'm full up to the dome of my head with jealousy. Super nice work, Seb.

Did you take any in-the-process pics?

prior to trimming them for infinity.

the beginning of that thread shows how to disassemble each lens too.
