Views of the high-rise block from across the street, taken with the Minolta MD Rokkor-X 50mm 1:1.7 fitted to an E-P5, post-processed on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) with final print sharpening done on Google NIK Sharpener Pro 3.

I normally do a quick shoot session with the lenses I am testing and most of the time did not bother much about the setting on the camera, except that they are mostly taken with the lens aperture set wide open.

Historically, 'Rokkor-X' lenses are normally designated for the North American market, while the rest of the world gets the 'Rokkor' only version. Apart from these minor cosmetic differences, there is actually no difference between the Rokkor and Rokkor-X versions of the same lens.
