Sony A7 Legacy Lens Tests (3 primes)

I've long gotten past pixel-peeping and critique of minutia in my and others' photography. However, based on suggestions made in my previous post about the A7 and Minolta 50mm lens, I have decided to do a quick test of 3 prime lenses.

All shot in A-Mode, ISO 100, on a small tripod, 2s timer, and focused on the right 'Zulu Warrior' about mid-body. The table was lit with 2 OttLites. The only PP done was WB, slight DxO 'lighting', and sharpening (in DxO) at 160/0.8/2.

The following are the lenses and the f-stops for the shots:

Minolta MC Rokkor-PG 50mm f/1.4 - 1.4, 2, 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16

Kiron 28mm f/2 - 2, 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16

Midori 135mm f/2.8 - 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16, 22

There are 22 images in the following folder, which respectively relate to the f-stops as noted above and in the filenames:

Additionally, here is a link to the non-pp OOC RAW and JPG files:

Hope this is helpful, and take care everyone!
