I think it could be fun to start an images thread for these old Minolta lenses. The only rule is that the pictures must be taken with a Minolta SR mount lens.

nice stuff @Phillip Reeve ... those Minolta Lenses are quite something ... tomorrow a 85mm F1.8 will be delivered ... but that 28mm F2.0 seem like a good/unique one too

Thanks Phillip for starting this thread; some nice images here.  I have had a number of wonderful Minolta lenses and regret parting with most of them--particularly the MD 85mm f/2.  I still have the MC Rokkor 58mm f/1.2, so I though I would throw in a casual portrait taken with that lens on my A7II.

I like it's rendering but it won't win any prices for sharpness

I agree, these old Minolta lenses are beautiful to work with.

 

I am using them for 40 years now and never had a reason to complain :-)

The performance of the 135mm f/2 is outstanding even at fully open and it is extremely sharp. There are minor chromatic aberrations, easy to correct in LR. It is the heaviest of my lenses, but by far my favourite. With the A7, it is a perfect match, beautiful to handle.
