Just won one on the Bay for USD $2. I just hope I get it, I've been trying to get one for the last couple months. This is the first one at the right price. Very Happy I'm taking a big chance because it's in BC Canada.

Anyone that has one please post some pictures from it.It might be a while before I get this one depending on how long the strike lasts.

The right price, jeesh, you're tough. I don't think it's so much a risk buying from Canada or for that matter, anywhere else. The risk is more associated with the individual seller, so feedback profile is important to pay attention to. Honestly though, I think buyers present more trouble to sellers than the reverse.

Back to the lens... I anticipate good results. Please share when you get it.

Hello Walter. I have this lens. I posted some pictures in this thread. Scroll down to post 11 for this lens and make sure you click on the pictures, they are much sharper then:

Hope it arrives OK, I'm sure you'll be pleased with it when it does. Wink

The risk I was talking about is the Postal strike in Canada. Hopefully it won't last to long. By the way the seller ir really nice I've already talked to him he's going to ship the lens as soon as the strike is over.
I normally only have $20 to $25 to spend per month on camera equipment so I need to stretch my dollars. I've gotten pretty good at it. Very Happy Laughing

I will post some test shots as soon as I get the lens.

Peter, Thank You. I've seen plenty of tests and pics of the later MD lenses
but you don't see much on the earlier versions of this lens.
Looks like I'm going to really like this one.

Got it today and it's a beauty.Of course with a no glass adapter onn a 10D
it's very limited what I can do with it. Now when I get my NEX or G1 it will be a different story.
I will try to update with more pictures later today.
So here it is. Minolta MC W Rokkor HG 35 2.8 on Cannon 10D with glassless adapter. Shot is at 2.8 with No PP.
Comments and Critiques are Welcome.

Thank You.I think this ones a keeper, it seems to render colors nicely with no correction.

I like old Minolta lenses pretty much , better than latest ones. I have only two of them and I did try perhaps two new ones. Olders are much more pretty and at least good as or even better.

Excellent results, you definitely got your money's worth! Cool

I have that same lens & just put it on my G1 & took a couple quick shots for you with the lens wide open. I applied my standard PP no cropping, just re-sized to 800 on long side.


1. taken @ minimum focus distance.

Thanks Ron. I'm leaning towards the G1. It's really nice to see what I can expect out of the lens.
I've seen some of your other posts with Minolta lenses on the G1. It seems to be a really good combo.

Thanks, for posting. I hope to get a Panny soon myself, or the Nex so I can use my lens more.
So far the HG is my favorite of the Minolta 35mm focal length lenses.
