NEX-5 + MD 50mm 1:2


I've recently got an MD adapter for the NEX (waiting for my Rokkor 135mm tele), and I've had two old MD lenses that I used with my good ol' x700

One of the lenses turned out to be Minolta 50mm 1:2, so I grabbed it to test how it is with manual focusing and all that (it's my first adapter). f2 is tricky as it has a very thin focus point and produces quite a nice bokeh, the below example is not the best to show bokeh but you get the idea (f2):

Here's the same shot at f5.6 (if I'm not mistaken), focusing point was wider and less fringing involved:

I made some simple tests with this lens at night and I must say that I was impressed, as long as my amateur experience goes I'll post some more pictures that can show better examples of bokeh as soon as I make them.

Here's how the setup looks (pics made with phone):

PS. and here's my x700 with the other lens, Sigma 28mm, have to try that with my NEX too! .
