You'd think someone would've compared them directly by now, but I haven't found any links to provide on that front. Maybe it'll be up to you to show the rest of us how they do?

Ha! Ha!

Ken Rockwell actually reviews both. Likes the AF and raves about the Rokkor - but doesn't make any actual comparison. Besides which his reviews and assertions so often contradict each other that I wonder why anybody takes him seriously.

For instance, this is him on the Minolta 20mm AF f2.8

"I bought this Minolta 20mm f/2.8 for my Sony a99... Today I use it with my Sony LA-EA4 adapter on my Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras."

and in his LA EA4 review

This little gizmo lets our mirrorless cameras replace SLRs...

and then here he is on the LA EA5

"This adapter is for old people with a bunch of old lenses of which they they won't let go rather than get with the program and buy all new dedicated E-mount versions."
