****Please educate me on the Minolta lenses for the X700...it's my first Minolta and I'd like to get the best available glass. Thanks in advance for your help!***
Just tested the MC, PF, 58mm f1.4 on my X-700 and the lens is quite sharp, but it has a flare problem and wierd boheh wide open (well on my ordinary shot).
I've used this lens on Fuji and Jessops film and against the expert's opinions I seem to get cold results rather than warm...more like Canon lenses.
Jessop's film 200asa, some colours are peculiar to this film, I reckon more like Walmart from shots I've seen from the US.
From supermarket scanned CD, and I think the results are quite good....... for 99p
Bokeh wide open
Resistance to flare

No contest compared to a 35mm f2.8 canon fdn:-
That's a bit of a generalisation, there are some very good MD zoom lenses, the 70-210/4 and the 28-85 f/3.5-4.5 are a couple that spring to mind.
