I use the Fotodiox adaptor with the Minolta MD 50 1.4. It can provide some very painterly like effects, but it's pretty sharp when needed. Sometimes I get some glow when wide open.

Here are are shots I made with this combination.

Wow ! The orchids are "blazingly sharp". I will try my hand with the adapter and an old MC 58 mm f/1.4 Rokkor as soon as I can. Thank you for your help.

.
I have a collection of Minolta lenses.I got LBA when I had my Sony SLT A55.I think I'll try this Fotodiox adapter.The Minolta lenses (in particular the f2.8 100mm macro) are basically worthless since Sony abandoned A-mount.For the low price of an adapter I think it's worth a shot.
I'll get back with some examples as soon as.
Cheers,Gerry.
