While realigning gear, my brother hit town with a bag of old Minolta products he found in his garage. I offered to look them over, and found two bodies and three lenses: a Deitz 35-75 zoom, Elicar 35mm f/2.8, and (gasp) a Rokkor MC 50mm f/1.4! I was compelled :^) to pick up a MC/MD adaptor for my Lumix micro4:3 camera to give the two primes a spin, and they look very nice at first blush. We shall see if the hefty f/1.4 is more compelling than my Rikenon f/1.7 or f/2, but the Rokkor sure is nicely built.
