Sony NEX-5 w/ Minolta 55mm f/1.7

    Newer Older

    The Minolta MC Rokkor-PF mounted on the Sony NEX-5 through the use of an MD-NEX adapter. Note how the compact lens is not much bigger than the adapter, and that both form a nice even cylinder to the lens mount.

      which mode is the best way to shoot with M, P, S?

      There are various adapters on eBay. I got the cheapest type for about $20 US and it's decent enough.

      Depends on situation. In good light or on a tripod I usually use P and let camera handle the shutter speed. In low light I might use S and Auto ISO to set a shutter speed fast enough to prevent motion blur.

      I finally got the lens.. jealous your lens looks so much better than my MD 50mm 1.7. the white aperture ring and all metal gives it the classic nostalgic look on high tech nex. is there much of difference in the actual photos, enough to go back to ebay? anyway what do you think my first time out

      DO you think this lens is better than the Canon FD 50mm 1.8? I am planning to get this lens.

      Sorry, have never used that lens. I would imagine they are quite similar though.

      What a beauty of a combination. That NEX looks proud to be sporting your Rokkor glass. :)

      I have this lens and still attach on Minolta SR-1s. What I know is we can only use M mode but I wonder if metering works?
