Minolta 50mm f1.4, Nex-3, LA-EA1 adapter

Last night, I got the chance to test one of Minolta's rare lenses, the 50mm f1.4. Built quality was very good for an old lens. Because it wasn't a SSM or SAM lenses, focusing is manually done, but having said that, it was easy to get sharp photos. No pp done on these photos except resizing and WB.

1/20, iso 800, f2.8

I recorded a short video afterwards.

opps...I mistakenly put the title as Sony 50mm f1.4 whereby it should be a Minolta.

What's with the mistake? Hehehe. I just bought a used Sony 50mm f1.4 from an Alphanatic's forumer, for RM400. It's cheap because the blades are stuck at f1.4. Perfect for 'bokeh master' as he said. Finally I have a good prime to play with once I get it repaired.
