    Default Minolta Rokkor-X 50mm f1.4

    Minolta 50mm f1.4
    serial 4224330
    f range 1.4 - 16
    focal range 1' - 30' - infinity
    6 blades
    minolta mount
    49mm filter

    This only average in size for a 50mm despite the large hole it has for f1.4 aperture . The f stops runs from f1.4 to f16 in half stops. It is well built and performs very well, very smooth with a touch of firmness. I the fit and finish is like a very good kit lens. It shows no softness wide open but is difficult to focus because of the thin DOF. It is very very sharp stopped down. The colors and contrast are natural. The bokeh is extreme and very nice, it is soft and creamy. CA is very well controlled at all but wide open There is about 180 degree rotation on focus ring. The depth of field is paper thin at f1.4 and the is a lot of CA wide open but you have to love this lens for its speed and sharpness. I got this off ebay for cheap.
