I'm far from being adequate with these MF lens (or photography in general), but here is a quick shot of my daughter that turned out well.

I love the toy camera filter with this lens.

I just got this one, but I am still fiddling with the adapter which lets it focus beyond infinity. So, these may not fully do the lens justice but here are two quick shots anyway. Taken on a quick break mostly to check for contrast, colors, and bokeh. Very slight adjustments in LR, looks like it needs some boosts in contrast.

Little red car. Hand holding this surprisingly well at 1/25 though closer look shows some blur.

I love this lens. Stopped down to F/4 it's as sharp as sharp can be. Wide open it's incredibly dreamy.

Here is a soft one, shot wide open on a DMC-GF3. Far from a clinical lens, but pretty pleasing!

Well, im new here at mu-43 but ive been lurking for a month or two now. I have this 58mm minolta rokkor that i got and my first adapted lens for my epm-1. It seems there are few users of this fantastic lens here. So here's my share.

You are going to enjoy this lens. It's a bargain lens IMO. I know the 1.2 is the be all and end all for bokeh but this isn't far behind. I have loads of nifty fifty's hanging around, but this is as good as any I have.

Yes i'm seriously enjoying this lens right now. Shooting handheld, this is my go to lens for things that doesn't move. It's good for video too. Although my copy has pretty stiff focus ring. But still... The bokeh in this lens is what i can say, dreamy.
