The included lens is Minolta's fantastic MC Rokkor series 50mm. This standard focal length lens is perfect for general photography, snapshots, action, landscapes, portraits, and street photography. The fast aperture of F/1.7 enables glorious bokeh when shot wide open, offering subject isolation for portraits, and low-light shooting such as the type found with nighttime street shooting. When stopped down, the lens creates outstanding sharpness across the entire frame with no light falloff, chromatic aberration, or distortion.
Additionally, the camera uses Minolta's SR Mount, which means that any of Minolta's fantastic MC / MD lenses will fit on this camera body.
