12mm Minolta Spiratone sample photos
May 28, 2011

Hi,

After reading some write-ups by a dyxum member, got interested and was able to get a copy. The lens with the MD-NEX adapter looks good. However, nailing a 'sharp picture' is a challenge. Center area of the image seems fine but then falls off quickly to the edges. You only have 3 f/stops to choose (depends on the lens you have), mine only has f/5.6,f/8,f/16. Flares are common because you cannot attach any hood. I enjoy using it as it gives a different perspective.

Here are some sample shots:
