Minolta X-500 (X-570) – the lens lineup

Minolta MD Lineup

As previously discussed, I have decided to focus quite some more on my 35mm film camera, the Minolta X-500/X-570. After talking about the Minolta Motor Drive 1, see here, we will now discuss the lens lineup.

I have unfortunately not been able to find a place that can reliably clean a lens up around here, so the Tokina 35-200mm f/3.5-4.5 is now sleeping in a Ziploc.

Here are the few lenses I have decided to use on this 35mm journey.

#1 – Minolta MD 28mm f/2.8

#2 – Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.4

#3 – Minolta MD 70-210mm f/4

#4 – Pentacon 135mm f/2.8 Preset – the “Bokeh Monster”

#5 – Sigma MD Tele-macro 2x

#6 – Flash unit National PE-2005

Of course, I use a M42/MD adapter for the Pentacon, and macro rings. I will probably purchase a better flash unit in the future as well. But for now, everything is just perfect as it is.

What do you think?
