Legacy vs E-Mount Lens IQ
Jan 27, 2013

Hi All,

I already have a CZ24mm but wanted a zoom lens and didn't think I would be happy with the IQ of the SEL 55-210 from various reviews so thought I would try out a legacy lens. I bought a cheap adapter and a Minolta 70-210 f4 MD for my Nex 7 that cost me £35. Here is a JPEG shot (and my first EVER one I have posted online) I took with it unedited. Any comments welcome and especially if you have a 55-210 in terms of comparable IQ etc. Any suggestions of other cheap(ish) manual lenses would be welcome as well. Thanks!


Nex 7 , f4, 1/125, ISO 400, indoor no flash. Focal length unknown as details are not retained in image.
