    Sorry, I don't and I don't have an adapter for my camera to take some.

    Oh okay... no problem. I've just heard that a lot of the legacy lenses don't perform well wide open, or until the aperture reaches the current native lenses aperture, so I was curious. Thanks anyway!

    I have the exact same lens and use it with an adapter for my G1.
    I love using it on both my µ4/3 cameras and Minolta film bodies. It's a joy to use, especially when you want to use it on film .
    I could take a photo with mine if the OP wants me to. In case you do not know about this lens; These particular lenses are coveted amongst many modern DSLR users because of the desirable Bokeh, which has always been legendary with any of Minolta's f/1.2 lenses.
    Yes I said modern DSLR users, because these are often converted to fit other camera mounts such as Canon , or better yet M42 screw mount lenses so it can be used with a couple different Mount cameras (a practice I appall). I prefer using Minolta lenses Unmolested with adapters on cameras such as the µ4/3 mounts or Minolta MD Bodies.
