This time a little early entry for Monday... And a little of "gear-bragging" - also something I did not before ;)
One of my analog cameras is Minolta XD7 with 50mm f1.7 Minolta MD lens. I enjoy using this camera very much, just handling of it is great experience. A little mechanical / electronic wonder where everything is in its place and works seamlessly :)
Although this 50mm produces great images, I sometimes wanted a little more flexibility, so I searched for a small zoom that I could use. I didn't want to spend too much, so I passed on some 35-70mm Minolta Rokkor lenses (really good ones, though) and settled for a 28-80mm f3.5-4.5 Sigma MD lens, which set me back somewhere around ~35 Euros. I also got original leather transport tube and Sony E adapter with it, so the deal was not that bad ;)
The lens itself looks really good for its age, almost like new, it also handles great. Build is all metal, glass an rubber, really sturdy, something that probably only pre-80s gear has.
I shot a test roll with some random photos quickly to check if it works OK and got my scans at the end of the last week. Here are some test photos. I think I need to learn to use this lens better (a little more work to do with 3 rings - aperture, zoom and focus), but photos are OK ;)
