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.
Can’t remember where I picked it up, but Mason Resnick’s tale is a great read. It made me understand Garry Winogrand’s photography a little bit better, although I still have the feeling that I don’t really appreciate it yet as much as it deserves.
These I’m not sure about, but I like them enough to show them here.
