MD's And Rokkors

Bought myself a 50mm lens off of ebay for the Minolta X-700 with some of the money my parents gave me for my birthday.

When I popped round a few weeks later my dad said he had a lens for me that he'd got from a car boot sale.

A 50mm lens for my Minolta X-700. Doh!

Turns out they are different though.

The MD (above left) has a min aperture of f22 whilst the MD Rokkor (arove right) has a min aperture of f16.

Guess I'll have to do a comparison roll of film.

  1. There's a f1.2, but they usually go for around $800.00 on ebay, guess I'll settle for a f1.4
