Fuji X-E2 and Minolta 35mm f2.8 | Ming Art

In between 1973-1976, Minolta revised the old optical design of the MC 2.8 / 35mm. Although reduced from 7 to 5 lenses, Minolta increased image quality. The MINOLTA 35mm 1:2.8 (5 lenses / 5 groups) is richer in contrast than other Minolta lenses I used and sharp from f/4 on the Fuji X – E2 when selecting b&white Filmsimulations like „red filter“. Again like I mentioned in previous posts, this is not the XF-35mm 1.4 lens, which delivers remarkable results especially the details. But the Minolta goes for around € 75. Focus peaking makes manual focusing convenient. All images shot with Fujifilm X-E2 and using OOC JPG´s. Mainly using aperture f/4 and sometimes only zone focusing, which works great with this lens. Please note that all images are not 100% in quality, since i reduce the file seize. But it hopefully will give you an impression how this lens can work, in color or b&w mode…..
