    All photos were taken with the Minolta 58mm f/1.4 at different stops.

    Guard - I was going for a faded look.

    I like this lens a lot. I only have a 50mm f1.4, 50mm f2.0 and a few varying 28mm's as yet, though always looking out for additional Minolta lenses. This photo was taken by my friend with his 58mm 1.4 on a Sony A7r.

    It has become my favorite lens. I use it for everything.
    I have a Zeiss 35mm FE lens that don't use as much due to this lens.

    Thanks! I try not to get carried away editing photos. I usually spend about 7 - 10 minutes on each using Lightroom

    I have this lens and I love it! I use it on my NEX 6 with a Fotodiox Pro adapter, and on my Minolta XD11. I have not tried it on the a6000 yet, but I am pretty excited to see how it performs on the 24 MP sensor.

    Unfortunately no, its one of the few affordable Minolta lenses I haven't own, that and the 28 2.8 :)
    But I love that focal length and have been tempted to buy one
