    got my 1st legacy lens - a five star/tou 28mm/f2.8. wondering if the gap between the lens and the adapter is normal? it's tight, no rattle, and images are fine, but it seems like it should snug up. advertised as a minolta mount, and stamped MC (which could be unrelated for all i know), i got an mc/md adapter for it.

    A6000, BTW, but that end works just dandy.

    thanks, hive-mind.

    the critters are cropped, the rope is not. aside from the crop, they're straight outta the camera. all shot wide open.

    edit - the rope was at about 6" from the lens. the ebay listing didn't mention it, but it's marked macro.

    Cute kitty! I have this lens in Minolta mount, and I think it looks normal.
    If the lens isn't rocking loose on the adapter, then it's fine.
    BTW, it's a great lens, a real sleeper. Enjoy!

    thanks. i read just that about it on here recently and there were a few of em on ebay for $20 or less so i grabbed one. good to know about the adapter, if a bit disappointing aesthetically.
