June 2020: Minolta 500mm/8 Mirror

In our Used Department, we recently had the exotic Minolta RF ROKKOR-X 500mm/8 mirror lens. We got to take it out for a spin before it sold, and thought you would enjoy seeing some of the images from it. It really is an exceptional lens (with a VRRRRY shallow depth-of-field).

You can read a review about the lens HERE. We just wanted to show you some of the fun images this kind of lens can make. If you happen across one, and are shooting full-frame mirrorless, you might want to scoop it up!

I took the lens, on a Sony A7iii out to a few local parks…the focus is very touchy, but when you hit it right, it’s really great! :)
