Re: Sony A7 w Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm 1.4

I have both MD Rokkor 1.4 and 1.7. And I also felt that the 1.7 is sharper when used in-door. I actually did multiple tests in-door and found that the 1.7 consistently gives better contrast (at common F-stops 2.8 and 4.0). Even F1.7 appears better than F2.0 (of the F1.4). The camera was resting on my table and shutter fried with a timer so camera shake is not an issue.

Maybe I have a lemon (nothing visible to me). But outdoor, the 1.4 seems to be better. I don't know how to explain it.
