Minolta MC Macro Rokkor-QF 50mm F3.5 Prime Macro Lens Complete with Minolta Extension Tube, Reversal Ring Adapter, Caps, Case and Manual
Here we have a pristine and complete Minolta MC Macro Rokkor-QF 50mm F/3.5 fast prime macro lens complete with original Minolta extension tube, reversal adapter, caps, case, and manual.
This lens is functionally and cosmetically exceptional, with no wear or damage. The glass elements are clean, clear, and free of fungus, balsam separation, haze, and cleaning marks. The aperture is snappy and the blades are free of oil. The focus ring is silky smooth and perfectly weighted, and the aperture ring clicks with mechanical precision.
The filter threads are unmarred and the mount is perfect. Additionally, the mount on the extension tube is perfect, resulting in an incredibly tight and confidence-inspiring mounting process.
The barrel is in pristine shape, suffering zero paint loss or markings.
The included case holds the extension tube and reversal ring. These two components, which are often missing, increase the close-up capabilities of the lens to outrageous levels. First, the extension tube allows true life-size macro shots. The included reversal ring allows the lens to be mounted to the camera backwards, which allows magnification to greater than life-size macro. This allows incredible images to be made.
In addition to the close up capabilities offered by this lens, when the macro lens is mounted directly to the camera the lens is capable of taking both close-up shots and standard 50mm focal length images. Because of this it is extremely versatile, and able to shoot general purpose photography as well as close-up work. When coupled with the extension tube it is capable of taking extremely close up macro shots that are stunning in detail.
Well-known for their exceptional color, contrast, and sharpness, Minolta lenses are second to none in the world of vintage camera lenses. Extremely high build quality, exceptional optical coatings, and precision machine-work set Minolta's glass apart from the rest.
It can be naturally mounted to any Minolta SR mount (MC/MD) film SLR, or mated to any of today's DSLR or mirror-less cameras through the use of inexpensive adapters. Please contact me if you're unsure about which adapter will allow this lens to mount to your camera and I will happily provide a link to the best adapter I've personally used.
This lens will be shipped immediately and packaged securely to ensure safe arrival.
