Block Party in downtown Middlebury, VT yesterday. Went walking about with the Minolta Rokkor-X 45mm f2 parked on the A7Rii. Every time I use this lens I wonder why I don't use it more. Apparently, I am a slow learner.....

Took out the Tokina SD 400mm f5.6 yesterday at Lake Elmore in northern Vermont. This thing is light, relatively small (about a foot long) and not too shabby! It is helped along by a little sharpening, clarity and de-hazing in post (the Tokinas all seem to haze a little, though I can't actually see any obvious hazing in mine -- and I have looked), but I think - for a cheap big tele on a demanding sensor - it puts in a solid effort!

Looking south from the beach at the very northern point of the lake. The cars you see are a little over a mile from me in this shot. Not cropped. The boat shed with the blue door down on the right is at the southern end of the lake, about 4/5ths of a mile away. The boats and paddlers are about 3/4 of the way down the lake from me.

I took my A7ii and some adapted lenses along to the local air show today (to give my arms a rest from the DSLR & sigma 150-500).
Still downloading images ready for processing but here's a taster for you:

Shot with a Paragon 500mm /8 mirror lens. The only processing being boost of contrast, cloning out the dust rings & resizing. So the vignetting is very obvious!

The Minolta 45mm f2.0 is an amazing lens. And, reasonably priced if you shop around. Good pics.:thumbup:
Thanks! I really, really like it. It's an outstanding street lens for me. It's wee, the handling is smooth and fast, and it's sharrrrrrrrrrrp.

Picked mine up in perfect condition, attached to a fully functioning SRT201 body for $10.49 on fleabay..... I'm pretty okay with that value! 😎

This hummer is always in our backyard. He's very territorial regarding our Lavendar plant. Today he was sitting up very high so was hard to spot while he was keeping an eye on his rival. It is amazing how fast they can fly when they are keeping rivals at bay when it comes to food such as the Lavendar plant supplies.
