    I heard tell of a cheap old Minolta 1:2 50mm lens that was sharp from wide open. The good news is: this is that lens! In the center, it tests better at f/2 than the newest MD 50/1.4 stopped down. It even tests better than my Leica Summicron-R!
    The bad news is: the corners are funky. Even stopped down. I would say this lens is unacceptable for landscapes.
    It's great for wide open shallow focus shots, though - can't get much better BOKEH for the buck!
    The glass is in good shape and the aperture is very snappy.

    Included are a generic 55mm front cap and authentic old Minolta rear cap.

    I'm selling this because I have a few too many legacy lenses around - especially 50mm.

    I know how to complete a transaction. I have solid feedback on eBay (username: jefenator) Talkbass.com (Jefenator) and ETSY (https://www.etsy.com/shop/JAglassworks). First come, first serve - please respond to any messages within 24 hours or I reserve the right to offer the item to the next interested party.

    Thanks for looking!
