Minolta MC Rokkor PF 58mm F/1.4 Fast Prime Legacy Lens with Caps and Case
Here we have one of the most sought after Minolta lenses, the MC Rokkor PF 58mm F/1.4 with front and rear caps and carrying case. This lens is being sold at a discount because the filter threads are dented (as can be seen in the photos).
This lens is in excellent condition and is an example of one of the most unique vintage lenses that Minolta has made. It features excellent optics, impeccable build quality, and superb feel. The Focus ring spins with a perfectly weighted fluidity, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with mechanical precision. The glass elements are clean and free of balsam separation, haze, fungus, and scratches. The aperture blades are snappy and free of oil. The lens mount is in excellent condition.
The Rokkor 58mm F/1.4 is an interesting and exceptional lens for many reasons. For one, it's exceptionally fast. With a maximum aperture of 1.4 it's able to capture photos in low-light situations. This makes it perfect for street photography, natural portraits, product photography, action shooting, and general snapshots.
Another advantage of this lens is its incredibly thin depth-of-field when shooting wide open, and the way that it renders its bokeh (the out of focus elements of a photo). When shooting wide open, the lens creates incredibly well blended bokeh and has the ability to isolate subjects for stunning visual impact.
Stopped down it becomes incredibly sharp.
Minolta's exceptional early coatings ensure mitigation of flaring, ghosting, and chromatic aberration. Even in the most high contrast scenes these optical artifacts are well handled.
This lens is made for the Minolta SR mount (MC/MD) but can also be used on numerous digital cameras, Micro 4/3, and mirror-less cameras when paired with suitable adapters. This lens on any camera will give absolutely astounding low light photos, and incredible crispness and detail.
The lens will be shipped immediately and packaged securely to ensure safe delivery.
