Today I’d like to present a lens that is still very common and can be had for little money.Read more
It doesn’t come easy, doing street photography with a 28mm lens, but I’m trying hard because I like the results when I get it right.
I wondered enough to finally get one, hoping to find the ultimate 40mm lens for street photography: the Minolta M-Rokkor 40mm 1:2 is a very light lens with a relatively long focus travel and a tab to further support easy focussing. And because it is in Leica M-mount it means that the register distance is short, so the total length of adapter + lens on the Sony A7R2 is also really small.
The latest addition to my collection features this fast semi-wide-angle lens, the latest in Minolta’s MC line-up with the rubber-clad focussing ring.
