Minolta MC Rokkor-PG 50mm F1.4 is a nice but unnecessarily heavy fifty.








Minolta fans will crucify me for the following statement, but it's pretty much the same lens as later MD-III 50/1.4 featured above.
Grab a random picture out of the bunch produced by two, and good luck telling the difference without telltale signs.

Despite all the talk about the kinship with Rokkor-PG 58/1.2, the late plastic-fantastic MD-III has a marginally smoother bokeh.
I prefer the look of MD-III at F1.4 and Rokkor-PG at F2.

The difference is marginal though.


F1.4 with Rokkor comes with noticeable outlines:


F2 is better:

Olympus OM-System Zuiko Auto-S 50mm F1.8 has a quite pleasing bokeh for close-ups.
Unfortunately it does not hold up well with distance.

Sometimes you just have to create some wild Bokeh. Nikkor 50mm f1.8 AIS Japan only lens. very sharp and corrected so it tends to not have smooth Bokeh.
