First try of my MD Minolta 28 mm f/2 on my Pentax K3 III + Fotodiox
Lens: MD Minolta 28 mm f/2 Camera: Pentax K3 III Photo Location: Quebec ISO: 100 Aperture: F11

Today I mounted my old MD Minolta 28 mm f/2 on my Pentax K3 III via a Fotodiox adapter. I set the camera in Av mode and ISO 100, focused the lens @ f/4 then selected f/11 on the aperture ring. The results are beyond expectations, Minolta lenses are really good.

I like this wider view of the neighborhood. Looks like a beautiful sunny day. Good colors and focus.
