Re: Sold fuji 35mm, bought vintage Minolta.

lol, no adjustment because autofocus does not work.   I hated dealing with micro adjustment on my A77.   When i use a minolta lens on my Fuji X-E1 / X-h1 its using a lens adapter with a manual aperture dial and i am manually focusing using screen magnification and focus peaking.

Its very easy to nail focus on a static subject, but kids running around i just stop down to F4 or F5.6 and pray.  Prioer to mirrorless cameras i dealt with micro adjustment a lot.   It was very frustrating that a face would be front or back focused.  This is why the Sony eye autofocus was a game changer for me.   I believe its using contrast instead of phase detection
