    Yay, I have the same lens. In general I think the lens comes out a bit under-saturated and requies some PP, but the bokeh is amazing :D.

    Haha, they are not tomato.. I think they are meant to be orange (in colour). The lighting and LR (*ahem*) screwed up the colour a little.
     
  5. Hmmm - they look like persimmons to me, rather than oranges. Persimmons often stay on the tree deep into the autumn after the leaves have fallen, ripening slowly. They are delicious.

    Trivia bonus: I've been told that the Chinese name for tomato is "Western persimmon". (Or, at least, the name in Sichuan.) It helps to know that tomatoes were originally from the Americas, and first brought back to the Old World by Columbus.

    How is the F3.5 Celtic version of this lens? I see they sell cheap.

    Probably not bad.
    The Celtics are later designs than many of the Rokkors, and the 135/3.5 Celtic I got recently is significantly shorter than the Rokkor 3.5.

    The Rokkors of similar era have better coatings, and often more elements, although the final MD models often had reduced elements as well in the interest of saving weight as compaction was fashionable in the 80's.

    Fashionable compaction - that designer guy Maitini had something to do with that trend ...

    I just found an MD 135/3.5 that's significantly shorter than the Celtic.

    I edited my post above; the MD Celtic 135/3.5 I have is about the same size as the 2 MD Tele Rokkor-X lenses I have.
    I must have been thinking of the 2.8 which is a bit longer.

    There is at least one later MD 135/3.5 revision which is significantly shorter than my Celtic.

    I've posted some pics of a bunch of SR-mount 135's at Minolta SR-mount Lens Info (Rokkor, MD, MC, Celtic, ...)
