Pros: Durability

Cons: Poor sharpness and reduced contrast to TA, chromatic aberrations

Opinion: I wanted to try this 50mm, previously mounted on an old SLR Minolta, on my Canon 250D (APS-C) with a simple adapter; with the conversion it is comparable to an 80mm on FF. Despite the years (about 30) the lens has been preserved very well, apart from a few grains of dust, including rings. At full aperture the sharpness and contrast are extremely low (the effect may please, personally I do not appreciate), closing at f/2.8 the image quality improves greatly up to f/5.6. I would call the color rendering "neutral". I would have appreciated an intermediate shot, an f/2 for example, to enjoy a wide aperture more usable in standard situations.

Pros: Sharpness and colors very close to reality. Still well-welded and sliding nuts after 30 years

Cons: I can't find

Opinion: Lens first used on a Minolta SR505 grip in Hong Kong, then switched to digital on Fuji. It is one of the best manual focus lenses I have, along with the Carl Zeiss T 50 mm. I use it for portrait and street photo. It is a light, compact but sturdy lens that never loses its effectiveness and charm. Also proven to TA and I still enjoy it very much

Pros: Good clarity from f2.8 which is great at f5.6, very nice color rendition, great construction quality, lightweight and compact, low prices also for specimens in excellent condition.

Cons: Low flare resistance, longitudinal chromatic aberrations evident in strong contrast areas especially at TA and f2.8, it would be interesting to have an intermediate shot between f1.7 and f2.8 for the diaphragm ring.

Opinion: It was my first vintage optics too because you can find immaculate specimens at a few tens of euros, currently using it on a Sony A6000 (dense APS-C sensor) with dumb adapter making it a good mid-canvas for capable portraits to produce nice images especially for the best color rendering. This lens has a double character: when used in TA, although it does not lack resolution capability in the strict sense, it produces significantly "skinned" and reduced contrast images but this feature can be remarkably appreciated under certain circumstances, but already closing the diaphragm at f2. 8 the effect disappears and the contrast increases visibly to reach the maximum at f5.6 so that it can be used without any problems even for landscapes or shots that generally require sharpness. On APS-C, the edges are very good thanks to the reduced image circle. The bokeh is generally soft and pleasant, except in certain circumstances as branches or leaves placed in the background only at certain distances fromsubject. Out of focus light points are beautiful round when snaps to TA, but yield changes as soon as the diaphragm closes, showing an obvious hexagonal shape due to the same diaphragm consisting of 6 unrounded lamellae. Distortion so low to go unnoticed, you can safely do without corrections. Even with adapter the lens remains compact enough on the Sony MLC bodies and is light relative to its construction, so it's enjoyable to use. My specimen has a fluid focus ring that is good but not overwhelming. It may not be as distinct as other vintage lenses, but it is better suited to a more varied use and can be exploited more frequently.

Pros: Sharpness from f / 2.8; color rendering; solid construction, weight and bulk content.

Cons: Sharp decline of sharpness at maximum aperture, sensitivity 'to flare

Opinion: Using this target, with an adapter ring lens for correcting the draw, on Nikon body, without any problem. Still do not text at the bottom but from an initial assessment - from simple amateur - I can say that his strength is in excellent sharpness from f / 2.8, despite a sharp drop at f / 1.7. The lens returns true colors; and there are no obvious chromatic aberrations (just a picture, in my experience, showed an aberration green and in this case the photo was taken with a multiplier). The contrast and 'greater than other goals I have in use. Excellent performance even in low light conditions. The biggest problem I faced and 'sensitivity' to flare: If the sun and 'inside angle shooting, the photo will have' obvious purple hexagons, more 'or less extensive depending on the aperture in use. The focus ring is via fluid, without games, with excursion contained. The diameter of the UV filter that I mounted and '49mm, while the tab above shows 55mm.

Pros: very good brightness, excellent overall performance with a small decrease at maximum aperture, weight and compact size, solid construction.

Cons: I do not know, but at the widest aperture I had occasion to test it thoroughly.

Opinion: was the focal standard offer provided with a very good performance and homogeneous. Diaphragms work by f. 4 to f. 16, with excellent color. Lightweight and compact, shows a building with materials of good quality. Focus ring is very smooth and free of play, even after heavy usage and years of work. My specimen is attivoa since 1973.
