    Like the last one, classic example of leading lines in a composition and the placement of the house in the upper left corner feels just right to me.

    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. ;)

    Alif Minolta 100.

    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, :)
