  1. Purchased this lens a couple of weeks ago. Never really owned a prime in this focal length. It's been a lot of fun shooting with it. More images using this lens on the A7M2 can be found here.
  2. I've just bought a Sony A7 and an LE-EA4 adapter to use with the Minolta 70-210 f4 zoom but can't get back button focus to work, seemed straightforward, followed someones guide 1. Choose Menu > Custom Settings > Pre-AF > Off 2. Choose Menu > Custom Settings > Custom Key Settings > AEL Button > AF On. 3. Choose Menu > Custom Settings > Custom Key Settings > AF/MF Button > AF/MF Ctrl Toggle. 4. Choose Menu > Custom Settings > AF w/shutter > Off. however pressing the AEL button you hear a clunk but the lens doesn't focus? turn back on AF w.shutter a
  3. I have a a6000 and the Minolta 3600hs flash. I also have the hot shoe adapter to it will work on the camera. I have been on a couple portrait shoots since getting the adapter. My problem is it seems like the TTL doesn't always work. Every time I use the camera the mode on the back just says on not auto. I used to be a canon shooter then moved to mirorless for the size. I used hot shoe flashes a lot on those dslrs with no issues. Even when I change the flash compensation in the camera settings nothing seems to change.
  4. Hi all does any one know if the polarising filter unit for the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8gm lens part number Sony VF-DCPL1 Drop-in will fit a Minolta AF 400 f/4.5 A mount lens I don’t want to part with over £400 if it won’t fit or is there any other solution.
  5. From the album: Rokkor 50 1.4 on Sony a6000

    Granny was rocking my newborn daughter on the deck, and I snapped a photo with my a6000 and Minolta Rokkor 50mm 1.4.
  6. From the album: Rokkor 50 1.4 on Sony a6000

    Took a shot of this silk tree, what we southerners call mimosa, outside my mother-in-law's house with my Minolta Rokkor 50mm 1.4 on a Sony a6000.
  7. Get some margaritas and pudding, put your best 70´s dress on and watch my latest Video Review for the vintage Minolta 50mm Macro QF 3.5 on the Sony A7II! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=674
  8. Let´s take a trip to 1993 in this video review for the Minolta APO 100-300mm Tele Zoom Lens https://dsphotosblog.wordpress.com/2015/12/01/minolta-apo-100-300mm-video-review/
  9. Here is a Video i shot today on the A7II + Minolta APO 100-300mm. Picture Profile 7, SLOG2. Handheld. I´m surprised how good this lense performs also on Video. I got this lense for 70€ only. Get one if you can!
  10. Hi guys, I'll be purchasing the A7r2 soon and i want a cheap super tele photo lens for my amatuer bird watching thing. I'm thinking of minolta 100-400 APO but still wandering if it's going to be autofocus with the la-ea3 on A7r2? Please let me know if anyone has tried mounting the minolta lens with the la-ea3 adapter Ps. would be great if you could let me know the tracking af ability on the minolta lenses as well Thanks everyone in advance
  11. Since a few months, I do collect experiences with several Minolta Rokkor MD and MC legacy lenses on the A7. So far, I tried out: MD 17mm f/4 MD 35mm f/1.8 MD 50mm f/1.2 MC 85mm f/1.7 MD 100mm f/3.5 macro MD 135mm f/2 MD 300mm f/4.5 RF 500mm f/8 A description and extensive evaluation of most of these lenses can be found on this old but beautiful page: http://www.rokkorfiles.com/Lens%20Reviews.html I use a Novoflex NEX/MIN-MC-MD adapter, which is excellently built and extremly precise. Infinity stop is always exactly at infinity on all the lenses (except the RF, which is n
  12. Owning most of the beautiful Contax C/Y lenses, I could never really decide to spend the massive $$$$ for the 21mm Distagon. I might have gone for it if it wasn't so heavy and bulky too and it seems it's distortion is even more than the 18mm. I think nobody denies that it took the crown in 21mm in it's time, and most others in that range didn't even get near. Nevertheless, there are a few other mothers with beautiful daughters. So, what about alternatives in vintage glass? Recently, I tested two other famed ones side-by-side on my Sony A7R, the Minolta MC W. Rokkor 21mm f2.8 and the ti
  13. Got my new Lense and Adapter :-) The Lense cost me only 70€. This old Tele Lense is pretty lightweight for its focal length and i´m quite surprised how good the results are :-) No sharpening on those samples, just usual LR workflow, but you have to boost the contrast and saturation quite a lot. Again this is a very good bargain if you are looking for a tele lense! Here are some Pics i made today with Sony A7II + Minolta APO 100-300mm:
  14. Got my new Lense from a local Photostore, its an old Minolta 50 mm MC Macro Rokkor QF 3.5 used with a Xsource Adapter on my A7II. Amazing how sharp this old lense is and how good the Bokeh is. Its built like a tank and the focusring is like butter. You have to boost the contrast in LR but theres no sharpening needed. I got this baby for 70€ :-))
  15. TL;DR: got any recommendations for a cheap fast manual non-radioactive 50mm prime? I have an a6500 with the 16-70mm kit lens and also the 30mm f1.4 Sigma lens, which I love by the way. However, I want to use some legacy primes to experiment with different focal lengths, perhaps a tilt adapter later on, etc. I also don't want to use a radioactive lens, because firstly I don't have a basement in my small apartment to "hide" the lens away when I'm not using it, secondly, I have a dog, thirdly I just don't want to take the risk. I have shortlisted it to the following: Minolta rokkor-md 5
