    I can't understand why Minolta lenses are so (comparatively) neglected. Many of their MD lenses give astonishing results on µ43.

    Not much has changed, if it didn't / doesn't say Nikon / Canon the vast majority assumed it was somehow second rate...

    I owned several Nikons concurrent with Minolta SRT's. The Nikon lenses are superb.. the Rokkors are right there with them... IMHO

    Very nice shot, but the white balance seems a bit off if I may say so. I'd venture it would like nicer if you warmed it up, it looks blueish.

    I got this lens couple of months back, and it was first legacy lens. I love it, and enjoy using it, not very sharp at f2, but gives very good results.

    I got one from my passed grandfather with his Minolta xg-1 and tons of lenses.

    I don't remember the fstops i used. And these are uploaded from my camera through my phone. I haven't looked at them on a computer yet.

    I have this lens. A cheap lens seeing that it is an F2. I think this one gives the most Minolta colours. Very vivid. I just received the adapter and this one of of the first few shots taken using a m43 camera.
