Minolta MD W.Rokkor 35mm f1.8

Everytime I walk pass the vintage camera shop, I'll stare at the glass display for a long time before I tear my eyes away from this gem.


Today, I plucked the courage to enter the shop, and found it to be almost MINT. I just love how small, compact and fast it is. I talked to the storekeeper for a bit before we came to a deal.


I walked out a happy man:)




Rokkor files say:


"The 35mm f/1.8 MD Rokkor-X is a compact, fast and high performing wide angle lens, and has been a constant companion when I have gone shooting. The moderate wide- angle makes for easy framing in street photography, and as a landscape lens the focal length is excellent.


The lens is considerably rarer than the popular 35mm f/2.8 version, and a good example normally sells for approximately US$170 - $190 on eBay, and about $240 - $260 in stores."
