Have you had a chance to use the 100mm with bellows?

I've seen this with a funky trigger grip and wonder how that would work.


I have not used it yet, but will soon and will post an image or two. I will be using it on a tripod however.

Most certainly. I think macro is a whole 'nother art form. Surprisingly difficult.

According to what I ve seen there are more emulations:

1.Full Metal Rokkor MC PG thoriated
2.Full Metal Rokkor MC PG not thoriated
3.Rokkor MC PG with rubber focusing grip
4.Rokkor MC

I got no 3 and 4.




I've been on the prowl for a 58/1.2. Waiting to find a nice one that isn't from Japan and doesn't have the requisite price inflation.

I've noticed there is also an MC Rokkor-X version. I'm guessing this version has the most recent coatings of the models made. Anyone know if this is correct?

Not quite.X-Rokkor was the name for the US market,so MC Rokkor - X is exactly the same as the MC Rokkor,MD-X,same as MD ect.

The most recent coatings has the version 4 (MC Rokkor 58/1.2) - the last MC,before newer MD1 Rokkor 50/1.2 was introduced.

Thanks Peire. How can you differentiate the MC Rokkor version 4? By serial? Also, do you know how many versions there are of the regular MD 50/1.2? If i'm remembering correctly there was only one version of the MD 50/1.2 and it is the last one made. A few people were discussing 1.2s in a different thread and they mentioned their favorite was the regular MD 50/1.2. They mentioned they preferred its rendering to the 58 and to a few others including the nikkor ai-s 50/1.2.

was that freaklikeme and my discussion in the cv 40/1.2 thread? if so, we both actually prefer the MC 58/1.2 to the MD 50/1.2 (we have both sold MDs but kept the 58/1.2), we just prefered the MD to the other ~50/1.2 lenses we used.

there are two body styles of the MD 50/1.2 (MDII and MDIII styles). there is no optical difference, but there might be a difference in coatings. i've tried all the versions of the MC 58/1.2, and I haven't seen any real difference in performance other than that the radioactive ones are yellower and a bit lower contrast (probably fixed by bleaching them).

here is a good source for the different versions of minolta lenses.

Oh that's right - thanks for clarifying. It was that discussion I was referring to and now I remember that you both ultimately prefer the 58/1.2. Also thanks for the link - hadn't come across this yet.

The 4th version from my list has rubber focusing grip and no "PG" letters engraved on the barrel.

There are two emulations of the 50/1.2 lens,which Derek has already explained.

I also prefer 58/1.2 over 50/1.2,mainly due to the quality of the oof blurr.
