Re: More Legacy Lens Talk!

I only have a few lens around the 50mm mark

1) Hexanon 50 1.7

2) Minolta MD Rokkor X 50 1.7

3) Minolta MD Rokkor X 45 2

4) Super Takumar 50 1.4

5) Hexanon 40 1.8

6) Mamiya Sekor 55 1.4

7) Olympus Zukios 50 1.8

For all intended purposes, the Hexanon is the best one in terms of sharpness, follow by the MD Rokkor X 50 and the mamiya sekor.

I have no plan to buy another one, they all perform well, i can pick up any one of them and be happy, only issue i have is that focus is relatively hard since they're all relatively fast lens with thin DOF, and since i'm mostly shooting people, it's pretty annoying to focus. But if you're shooting non moving/jitter things, i can see legacy lens works well.
