Minolta MD Fish Eye Rokkor X 16mm F 2.8 Wide Angle Prime Lens - with Cap
Here we have a rare Sigma XQ 16mm F/2.8 Fisheye Filtermatic fisheye lens for Minolta SR Mount (MC/MD) cameras, such as the X-700, SRT series, X series, etc.
It is in excellent condition and comes with a carrying case.
The lens elements are clean and free of damage, scratches, dust, fungus, and haze. The aperture blades are snappy and free of oil. The focus ring spins with beautifully weighted fluidity, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with mechanical precision. The mount is unmarred.
This lens allows for shooting a super wide field of view, enabling the photographer to capture images with massive scope. It's an exceptionally sharp lens with beautiful contrast and color rendition, and the multi-coated glass does very well to mitigate optical aberrations such as color fringing and ghosts and flares.
The lens features built in filters (orange, UV, yellow, and blue) and these actuate perfectly. They allow instant switching for black-and-white contrast boosts, or for accentuating certain areas of the light spectrum with color shooting.
This lens will naturally mount to any Minolta SR mount camera. These include any Minolta 35mm film camera capable of mounting MC or MD lenses. It can also be easily adapted to today's mirrorless digital cameras by using a simple and affordable adapter. If you need help determining if this lens will mount to your machine, just ask and I'll be happy to help.
The lens will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
