    Went on a field trip to a local pumpkin patch. Took the a7 and some old lenses of course. Instead of my trusty Yashica ML's I thought it would be good to put some Minoltas thru their pace. I also took my little early 1960's Auto Yashinon 5cm f/2. I havent used it much recently and I figured I would really give it a workout since I can only use it with an old Minolta to M42 adapter. So it mounted up nicely to the Minolta to E mount adapter.

    The little Tomioka lens is a gem. Small and jewel like it is a testament to Tomiokas lens crafting abilities even so far back as 50 years ago. I will probably be shooting with this one some more. So without further ado...

    The first two are from the Yashinon, while the rest are from the venerable Minolta MC Rokkor PG 50/1.4.
