    Very cute and nice DOF.
    I am currently waiting on a Minolta mound (MD) vivitar auto 28mm f2.5 lens to come in. Should be shooting with that very soon.

    how is that lens? do you think its worth it? does the adaptor cause image quality decreasnesS?

    Ive reviewed some photos taken with it, it is pretty sharp and I love the shallow DOF, though, I will be shooting around 5.6-9.0 on my EOS 60D body.
    And in my past experience with MD to EOS adaptors (35$) there has been no visible decrease (not that I had an original image to judge by) in the photo quality.

    IMHO, Sometimes these MF lenses add a certain character to an image. And its sometimes bragging rights :p

    I was hoping to get the lens in today but I'll be damn if the guy might have ripped me off. I hope not, since he's a top rated seller on eBay.

    The aperture on the said lens above is an awkward 2.5, but Im speculating they exhaderated and it's really 2.8. Either way, it should be an awesome lens, assuming it comes in ofcourse lol.

    I asked dad and he said a-ok! So I am getting this lens with an adapter for 125$ ... i think that's good? 2.8 in mint condition, and the pictures online look stunning!!

    hm, ill get the serial # and see .... oh its by tokina

    Actually instead of the 28mm I may be contemplating this lens
    55mm f1.4 Mamiya for 125$...

    If it were a Minolta MD Rokkor lens, I could possibly see 90 dollars, but I see them often go for 75$.

    The Canon EF 85mm f1.8 lens is a fast, sharp lens with a nice 8 blade aperture. (or is it nine?) and all that for around 400 dollars isn't bad at all!
