Mirvish Village

Mirvish Village -- NEX-5 & Minolta MC Rokkor 58mm f1.2 @ f2

Incidentally, the MC Rokkor 58mm f1.2 is my third f1.2 Minolta lens.  My first one, which was the MC Rokkor-PF 58mm f1.2, same built and series as the Rokkor-PF 85mm f1.7; the second one was the MD 50mm f1.2, my least favourite of the 50/58mm f1.2s.  The MD version had only 6 blades, whereas the MC Rokkor has 8-blade; the latest one is the last version of the MC 58mm f1.2. It's simply called MC Rokkor 58mm f1.2.  This  is the second favourite behind the Rokkor-PF version.  All three lenses exhibit similar optical characteristics wide open where the MD version is slightly better at flare suppression and purple fringing.  I like the overall image quality of the Rokkor-PF (first version) the best.
