thanks for that info. based on that link, it seems like some of the image fidelity is lost with glass optics adaptors for the MD's? What's the mechanical procedure where some people risk using a lathe?

i don't think most bother trying to adapt slow minolta primes, when there are so many easily adaptable other options...the main minolta that people work to adapt is the 58mm f1.2...because it's f1.2

While it's a slower lens, the idea of getting a prime lens at 24mm (36mm on my crop body) for so cheap and a quality lens at that seems enticing. Will the glass adapter adjust that focal length anymore than 36mm? sorry for the noobness. But after some more research it looks to be better to jut sell and make some money towards other options. Thanks for the input

Thanks, mine is a Ashai Pentax SMC Takumar 50mm 1.4 lens. Got it a few months ago, thin was mint, not a flaw. I honestly think it was never used or just slightly.

Nice, I'm waiting on my adapter for this lens and mine is minty fresh too. I just need to de-yellow the thing

That's pretty hard core. I'd opt to find a different lens before going through all that work.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

Is it true that is only the smc versions of this lens that have the yellowing problem I
read it was only the smc version not the m42 mount..

Minolta MD to Canon EF requires an adapter with glass optics due to the difference in Flange to Focal Plane Distance...

.. as long as one donĀ“t want to modify the lens.

With my homemade adapter one can use Minolta MD lenses on Canon EF cameras, and without adapter one still can use it on Minolta cameras.
But after modification infinity setting is not correct, one can focus behind infinity. And all iris automatic is not working.

I haven't read that. In fact I think it's the opposite. The M42 seems to have this issue because of the radioactive elements used in production.

I have one of these in my vintage MF lens arsenal. Nice glass and a great walkaround focal length on a crop. If you can clean it up you should get some great images out of it.
