I like this lens
I like this lens too
good color, and very sharp
Hmmm, your last picture has this kind of grid in the background. Is it supposed to be like that?
Edit: the grid is everywhere, even in the white part on the bottom...
i think it caused by acdsee when I resized the pictures from 1068 to 1024
Another lens, another beer bottle
I think I like Minolta better than Konica.
I must say I'm curious about the bokeh in this shot - I would consider it rather ugly and harsh personnally ? is it just me ?
It's distracting, that's for sure. I'd probably blur it out more in post.
i really like this lens also, minolta have made some great lenses for this type of stuff.
One of my first night photos with this lens.
this lens is just amazing!
I think that setting f/1.4 for this lens makes the image too soft and blurry with pale colors, even at the focus point, . I am not sure if this is only in my copy or this is normal for this entire series (2nd generation, MD-Rokkor, no "-X" in lens name). Anyway, I'm still using this aperture for high ISO B&W photos.
f/1.4 ISO1000 1/25s
Reducing the aperture to f/2 makes this lens surprisingly sharp with good colors - I really like it at this settings .
f/2.0 ISO100 1/2000s
Interesting comparison of Rokkor prime lenses (MC 50mm, MD 50mm, PF 50mm / PF 58mm) can be found here: Regular Rokkor Lens test @ Flickr
I love it! I may have to get this lens, since it looks like it gets sharper and more contrasty photos than the Konica 40mm & 57mm that I have.
What's a good price for this lens?
@F/2.0 + bokeh masters kit
Finally got my Minolta MD -> MFT adapter today so I put the MD Rokkor 50/1.4 on the GH2. I wrote a review about it on this site and here is a grab shot of our dog.

100 % crop
I paid € 40 for my almost pristine sample on eBay which is a steal, from a seller who didn't advertise too well and only offered bank transfer as payment option. Normal prices seem to be between € 50 and € 100.
I love this lens also. My one is an older one with a 55mm filter thread and orange type Rokkor-X.
About the image, I am trying something new (freelensing) that simulate the effect of tilt and shift lens.
I have an insanely dumb question....(sorry in advance)
I'm assuming that, with the 50mm prime and the 2x crop factor, that this works out to be a 100mm prime on the m4/3rds bodies. Is that correct?
If so, a 100mm 1:1.4 prime might just be one of the coolest portrait lenses ever!
Also, how close will this lens focus?
50mm focal length indeed works as a short telephoto on a µ4/3 body, indeed ideally suited for e.g. portraits. Nitpicking, a 50mm lens remains a 50mm lens, irrespective of the camera it's mounted on. The angle-of-view of a 50mm on a µ4/3 camera is equivalent to that of a 100mm lens on a 35mm film camera.
Closest focussing distance is 0.45m.
At f5.6 it's very sharp imo:
