Re: Sony A7 w Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm 1.4

Has anyone used this combo and what are your conclusions. I am finding I am getting sharp images in good light (outdoor daylight), but indoors under lower light it is hard to get a sharp picture without pumping the ISO which can get a bit noisy. Is the problem that the lens just isn't that sharp? I love manual focusing. Would I have better results w a Voigtlander or Zeiss M mount? Thanks!!

Without seeing some pictures it's all just a guess at what the issue is.
Low light is typically harder to get sharper shots, with my NEX-7 noise obscured detail in the EVF and it was difficult to judge where the plane of focus was, my A7r is much improved.
If you are looking for a sharp lens to manual focus, look for a Topcor RE 58/1.8
