More true legacy lens results...
2

The only true Legacy lenses to the Alpha would be those from the Minolta line.

One of those was the old 50 1.7 Minolta MD Rokkor X that got so cheap when the digital age hit that I'm sure many were used for door stops or paper weights.

I found one in a used furniture store for $15 when I was using a NEX 5, but now that it is on a full frame camera it has returned home.

This is a camera generated medium sized jpeg that I ran through Lightroom for DAM purposes and then cropped it heavily to show the detail in the figures. Once cropped it needed .2 EV reduction in exposure for my satisfaction. Also hand held so that slight motion blur you pixel peepers will point to is acknowledged as being operator induced. F 2.8

Another example of how adapted inexpensive lenses on Sony E mount camera's can offer more than adequate results.
