Testing out my new (old) Minolta 28-70 2.8. I’m not too sure if I like it though. I recently lost my very similar Tamron 28-75 2.8 and wanted to try something different when I replaced it because though the Tammy was a very good lens in many respects, I was also kind of bored with it compared to my vintage lenses. This Minolta lens was a high end pro lens released in 1993 and manufactured until sometime in the early 2000s, so I suppose that’s technically vintage but it’s still the youngest lens in my small but growing collection. (Shout out to friends and family for all the donations!)
One thing I think a lot of people don’t know about Ohio is that it is full of marshlands.
Spotted in my Papaw’s neighbor’s garage. Shot with an early 1970’s Minolta Rokkor 50mm 1.7 lens adapted to Sony A7 mirrorless (digital) camera. I absolutely love vintage lenses on this camera. Some of the focusing features of the camera make for a very smooth shooting experience.
