The Minolta 50mm F/2 ROKKOR-X MD is an excellent standard focal length prime lens that can be easily adapted to work with many full-frame or APS-C cameras. As an exceptionally fast, remarkably sharp lens with a reasonably attractive bokeh. With its viewpoint similar to that of the human eye, it’s ideal for a wide range of shooting scenarios including portraits, street photography, and even landscapes. This lens features a waffle-pattern rubber focusing grip for enhanced maneuverability.
