Rather than start a new thread on my just acquired MC Tele Rokkor PF 100mm f/2.5, I thought it would be best to just post here. Hope OP doesn't mind.
Anyways, the pic of my son below is from the first few shots (5th I believe) with the lens on my A7Rii.

@ f/2.5 1/200s ISO400 in manual mode. Nissin Di700A at 1/32 output with Air Commander at camera right through a translucent brolly. Background -0.7 stops.
Selective sharpening and serious zits removed in PS. ;)

ILCE-7RM2    ----       f/1.0    1/200s    ISO 400

Especially like #2. I can never put my finger on it, but there has always been something I like about what Minolta lenses add to an image.

Bob bdbits, and that #2 pic was shot wide open. I had a big tree at camera left acting as a giant lens hood, preventing veiling flare and reducing contrast.

Yes, I do agree with you about older mf minolta lenses. There's a lot to like about these lenses, :)

Just a test shot, but I really like how the colors and sharpness stand out on this one. Added a little vibrance in Lightroom, but that's about it. A7R2 and Minolta MD 2.5/100 at f/5.6.
