Anyone Shooting w Vintage Minolta MD Lenses
7

I have a Sony A7II and have several Minolta MD mount lenses that I like to use. This is my budget way of going full frame.They are all manual focus from the 70s & 80s ? They are reasonably sharp well built and have there own look. The bokeh can be very busy and the shadow areas can get a purplish look (easily fixed in post but in this case I left it in). This works great for some situations but not all situations.

Here is a photo I shot a few days ago with a Minolta MD 50mm 1.7  wide open with natural light just as the sun set. I like this look!

The best part is these are not at all pricey and sometimes just dirt cheap. A lot of bag for the buck.

Anyone else using MD lenses.
