#VintageLensTest - Five frames with a Minolta MD 28mm F2.8, on doing low-key edits in post-processing.

My trial at creating low-key shots and edits, from images shot with a Minolta MD 28mm F2.8 mounted on the E-P5 in a 1:1 image aspect ratio. While I am happy enough with the results from the first three images, the final two are just post-processing heavy edits and they are there solely as space fillers.

One advantage I have is the Minolta MD 28mm F2.8 lens, which is generally considered to be one of Minolta’s best 28 mm, an excellent lens often measured against the MC W.Rokkor-SI 28 mm F2.5 or the MD 28 mm F2.

The lens I use, even though it is a plain MD, is the 7/7 (7 elements in 7 groups) version which reportedly to be a step up from the later 5/5 version, recognized by the serial number which is 80xxxxx for the 7/7 series whilst the 5/5 version is 70xxxxx.

A little bit more detail is the plastic recess between the name ring and the front element of the lens which is designed with eight tiny steps instead of six.
