Found two legacy lenses online, screaming deal but I want only one for my EPL2 . . . but which one?

Minolta MD Rokkor X 50mm 1:1.4 (what mount is this?)


Auto Chinon 50mm 1:1.9

Any thoughts?

Hi! Regarding Minolta lens - official name of lens mount is Minolta SR. It is suitable for lenses marked as MD or MC. Please find more information here:


I own two Minolta lenses 50mm f1.4: MD and MC versions. I like more MD version for better performance at f1.4. I had compare them, please see here:


And samples of Minolta MD 50mm f1.4:


Frankly speaking - very good lens...
