    Sure, my friend whenever you want, we can visit some places more crowded, would not be bad to have a traveling companion.

    Great shots mate, the Rokkor 1.7 is one sharp lens with quite a pleasing bokeh, for the asking price most sellers want for it these days it is quite a bargain, it's a a better performer than the 1.4 (imo) though most people go for the 1.4 for the speed (though it's not really much).

    Great set buddy.

    thanks for the comment, I just got on friday the Minolta Rokkor 50mm f1.4, at first glance it looks great aesthetically, some minor cleaning lines, I made some shots and really is very sharp and fast, like you said, I hope going out and shoot this week to implement it.
