Minolta MC Rokkor-X PG 50mm F/1.4 Lens Review – Sony Nex-6

Minolta MX Rokkor-X PG F/1.4 50mm Lens

I’ve had the Minolta MC Rokkor-X PG 50 F/1.4 Lens for a few months now and in this article I’m going to show you what it can do on my Nex-6. I also used my very affordable RainbowImaging lens adapter to make the hook up on my Nex-6 and it did the job very well. Infinity is not perfect with this adapter however, which is worth noting for those wondering and wanting that very useful feature.

The more expensive lens adapters made by Novoflex and Metabones for example, offer accurate infinity focus and the finest machining quality to match highest quality optics like Zeiss, Leica and others..

You can pick up the Minolta MC Rokkor-X PG 50 F/1.4 Lens for ~$50 – $90 US on Ebay (Click Here) The RainbomImaging Lens adapter I’m using only cost ~$17.50 US, and you can get it @ Amazon (Click Here)

In other words, for an investment less than a kit lens, you can have your hands on pro grade speed and depth of field control! This is killer and I highly recommend taking advantage of all these older lenses on Ebay, garage sales, or in your families attics for that matter. Look around, you will be surprised whose family used to be in photography long ago, and just assume the equipment is useless.

Here she is with the included metal lens cap as I received it from Ebay.

The incredible f/1.4 speed of this lens makes shooting in low light no problem, and with relatively low ISO values. Not having an AF motor and other electronics make it a little easier to get such huge glass into such a small form factor. The  lens has a bit of weight to it, but it’s by no means over bearing on the Nex-6.

Build Quality

The build quality of the Minolta MC Rokkor-X PG 50 F.1.4 Lens is awesome in my opinion. It’s very old, but all metal and feels extremely solid in the hands. The focus is smooth and dampened with a sharply textured rubberized grip for adjustment. It’s very effective and slippage is never and issue. The aperture ring is all metal, with no rubber grip, and is notched for easy on the fly adjustments, but counting is required.  The notched aperture is not good for video, but as long as you leave the aperture alone it’s fine in my opinion.

 

Focus Peaking

I have Focus Peaking enabled on my Nex-6 and I’m using yellow these days as my primary color choice. You need to be in manual focus in order enable focus peaking in the menu. It’s grayed out in the menu when the camera is has auto focus enabled.  I also use the magnify zoom feature and have it custom programed to soft key B. The button next to the lower right of the lcd screen. Using these tools I can get a very good hit rate with sharp focus.

Other Camera Tricks and Techniques Used?

I also set the camera to multi-shot mode. This helps insure I have a few frames to choose from and is very helpful when shooting moving targets like kids. Layla for example is very hard to get sharp at f/1.4 or even f/2 if I am really close to her. Farther away it’s not so much of a problem. Sometimes speed priority is really fun too! I tried this with the bubbles you will see below.. When super close to Layla or Chubs for example, I try to use the eye-ball and eye lashes as my focus reference. I then hit the magnify zoom button and adjust the image on the lcd screen with the directional pad until I see the eye. I then fine tune to focus and take about 2-3 shots. This can often take a few seconds and you may miss the shot entirely if you subject moves, but its worth the effort for sharp shots when the depth of field is extremely narrow.

Real Wold Sample Photos

Having the Minolta MC Rokkor PG 50 F.1.4 Lens for several months now, I have a pretty diverse collection of real world sample photos. I didn’t get a chance to test this lens in the lab, but It really doesn’t matter as it’s a full frame lens anyhow. I will do the official Lab test using the full frame Sony A7 most likely. The Lab is actually all taken down as we are putting a tile floor down finally. It’s going to take a few more weeks, but once that is done I can really work on some permanent lab testing scenes..

A sunset scene with the focus point on the corner of my deck railing towards the bottom of the frame. The bokeh this lens produces is awesome in my opinion and borders on magical. Sort of like my Canon EF 135mm f/2 L lens. It just has a special look to it. Mind you, I honestly don’t have much experience with these older lenses. Just a few so far with this one being the best I have used.

I stopped at a car show on the way home from work the other day and grabbed a few snapshots as well. I love the rich colors and contrast the Minolta lens seems to capture, and these cars really show it off well. I did add some contrast and do a few other minor exposure adjustments on these. White balance was pretty mint off the camera.

You can see pretty clear on this 100% crop below, the red and green fringing on the high contrast white letter edges. On the left of the frame you see red, on the right you see green. This is what you get with most of these older really affordable lenses. It’s mostly correctable in post, but stopping down to f/2 or f/2.8 really makes a difference in output sharpness. I really prefer the out of focus background over the relatively minor fringing that is a slider adjustment away from being fixed in lightroom 5. Remember, I did not correct for any lens flaws on these images.

Conclusions On the Lens

Sony Nex-6 w/ Minolta MX Rokkor-X PG F/1.4 50mm Lens

Sony Nex-6 w/ Minolta MX Rokkor-X PG F/1.4 50mm Lens

The Minolta MC Rokkor-X PG 50 F/1.4 Lens is a lot of fun to use on my Sony Nex-6 and performs really well in my opinion. Especially when you factor in the age and money I spent. Yes, it does suffer from lens flare and other issues wide open, but it’s crazy cheap considering the speed. I am using the Nex-6 which has a 1.6x crop factor sensor and this is a full frame lens. Therefore, I am only really testing the sweet spot of this lens and you need to keep that in mind when judging the optical performance. Once I get the full frame A7, I will re-test this lens and I’m guessing the corner sharpness will not be the greatest wide open. Also the lens flaws will be a little more noticeable do to the larger higher resolution sensor. Still, I think this is a killer deal and even more so for the full frame cameras considering the native availability and fast lens cost.

  1. Speaking of old Minolta glass, I have a slightly newer 50/1.4 and it’s easily one the best old manual lenses I have. I also have the 28/2.8 which isn’t nearly as good (btw, your list is missing the 28/2 which I’d like to have as it’s supposedly a lot better than the f/2.8 version but is getting crazy expensive for an old lens these days), the 135/3.5 which is also nothing special and the 45/2 which I’d say is in the “good enough” category but its real advantage is that it’s a pancake lens so it’s really small.


    • Jay

      Hi Miran,

      I added a few more lenses to the list and will add more later when I get a few minutes. Thanks again for the comments and sharing your lens suggestions and experience! How much did you get the Oly for?

      Jay


  2. Gabriel

    I have the same lens and got very lucky to get it for $15 with a Minolta Camera and flash! 🙂
    I kept it along with my SEL55210 for when I want manual focus and extreme “bokeh”


    • Jay

      Hi Gabriel,

      Thanks for the comments and sharing your thoughts on the Minolta 50mm f/1.4 lens. I also have the 55-210mm and really enjoy using it 😉

      Best,
      Jay


  3. Fernando Ulrich

    Hi Jay,

    I’ve purchased the old Olympus Zuiko lens, 50m 1.4. Really great. I suspect it’s very similar to this Minolta you’ve just reviewed.

    I kinda like poaying with old lenses too. And sometimes you do get interesting results you don’t usually get from modern lenses.


  4. Another fine piece, Jay!

    The new tidbit I picked up in this one is assigning the magnify zoom to a button – which hadn’t occurred to me before. So thanks for that!

    I use the Fotodiox MD-NEX adapter for my MC Rokkor-X PF. I also find infinity is a bit dodgy. Having a sharp image at the stop would be nice – I guess there aren’t any MD-NEX adapters out there that manage accurate infinity?


  5. Hello Jay, Minolta lenses long time ago many years ago were supervised by Leica & Minolta made some lenses for Leica also. The Rokkor Lenses written in orange were the best. I use these on my Nex 7.
    28mm, 24 is very hard to find it is supposed to be the very best 24 mm ever made. I also use Leica lenses on the Nex 7. Waiting for the A7r. Hopefully this camera will work good with the Voigtlander 15 mm f4 lens, This particular one doesn’t work well with the Nex 7. It’s because the Voigtlander lenses on the mount side sit very close to the Sensor as these have a long rear end. The image Quality is excellent on these lenses.
    I also use Angenieux 28mm to 70 mm 2.6 f AF lens. Was lucky to find a new one. The co no longer makes any 35 mm lenses instead they make all the 3D lenses 70mm lenses for the big screen movie cameras. Very expensive. Blue bloods uses one. Most TV Stations use Sony video Cameras very few are using Panasonis with Leica lenses looks very good.


    • Jay

      Hi Eric and thank you very much for the comments and sharing your old school lens experience and expertise 😉 I greatly appreciate it and am slowly learning my way around all the different old school lens options.

      28mm, 24 is very hard to find it is supposed to be the very best 24 mm ever made.

      Is it a 24mm Rokkor-X or just a regular Rokkor? I will certainly keep an eye out for one, thanks!

      Waiting for the A7r. Hopefully this camera will work good with the Voigtlander 15 mm f4 lens, This particular one doesn’t work well with the Nex 7

      Yeah, I’m not sure how good the the ultra-wide angle will work. My friend Juha Kannisto on Google+ is testing out all his manual lenses now on the Sony A7r. I Highly recommend fallowing him and I’m pretty sure he has that 15mm Volt lens you mentioned!

      I also use Angenieux 28mm to 70 mm 2.6 f AF lens

      Never heard of it, but will check it out now 😉

      Thanks again for all the info,

      Jay


  6. Doug

    Would you guys recommend adapting this Minolta or getting a Sigma 30mm for street photography? Any opinions will be appreciated. Thanks.


    • Jay

      I would rather have this lens by far personally, but the manual focus might not be for you Doug? Also the 30mm is arguable a much better range for street than 50mm on the crop factor camera. You using APS-C still correct?

      Jay


      • Doug

        Yes, I’m using a NEX-6. I have no problem with MF, in fact I prefer it for faster shooting. So the effective range of this on the NEX would be 75mm, right?

        Thanks!


  7. Alfred

    Hi Jay
    How do you get RainbomImaging Lens adapter to fit your Nex-6? I bought it and it does not fit my Sony a6000. I thought both Nex 6 and a6000 are the same e mount.

    RainbowImaging stated it’s for Micro 4/3.
    I bought another adapter Fotasy for Sony E and I hope it would fit.

    Thanks
    Alfred


  8. Scott

    Hey Jay,

    Nice piece. I’ve been using this setup exclusively for the last two months and I really enjoy it. Coupled with focus peaking and the EVF it is relatively easy to use. The MC 50mm is build like a tank! One thing though, I always thought the NEX 6 is a 1.5X crop factor?

    Thanks
    Scott


    • Jay

      Hi thanks and thanks for the question and comments! Yes, Sony is 1.5x you are correct. It’s so close to the 1.6x crop factor that often times it’s considered the same in general chit chat, but technically it is 1.5x.

      Sorry about that,

      Jay


  9. Hi Jay,

    Is it possible to us Minolta MD Rokkor-X 50mm f:1.4 on the e-mount?
    Why did you use MC nor MD?

    Cheers,
    champ


  10. Jeffery Osei-Yaw

    Mr Jay. Im trying to buy this lens for my sony A3000. I went to ebay but it seems there are MD and MC lenses. Are these the same which can easily fit the adapter or are they completely different from each other? Thanks. Im a little worried I might buy the wrong one. Thanks


    • Jay

      Hi Jeffery Osei-Yaw,

      It’s the Minolta MC Rokkor-X PG 50 F/1.4 Lens according to the badging on the front of it. The mount/ adapter is the same for both though, so don’t worry about that.

      Jay


  11. Ben

    So given how awesome this affordable 50 mm is, what similarly older fast manual lens would you recommend with an effective focal length closer to 50mm, for street photography or portraits (I apologize if you have mentioned this already)? I am working on getting either an Nex-6 or a6000, and am really excited to get some older lenses to play with.


    • Jay

      Hi Ben and check out this article for all the lens links you are looking for!! 35mm would be a good focal range for the ~50mm equivalent on the A6000. 😉

      The Ultimate lens and Lens Adapter Guide >>

      I hope that helps,
      Jay


  12. Jay,
    Thank you so much for this article. I just inherited the same exact prime that you used with the same exact camera!! I also got some albinar lenses that I hear aren’t nearly as good as the rokkor-x. I bought the same adapter as you and I am extremely excited to try it out. The only caveat is the lenses have quite a bit of dust between the glass, so time to learn how to take apart a lens! cheers and thanks again. Love the site, very informative and it made it very easy to learn how to use my camera like a pro


    • Jay

      Awesome news Curtis and thanks for the great comments! Cleaning the lens is a lot easier than you might think 😉 Just google search cleaning Minolta md lens on youtube and a bunch of videos will come up showing you how in detail!

      Thanks again,
      Jay


  13. Kevin MacNutt

    On a crop frame camera, I would imagine this lens would be nearly perfect, although I am shooting this lens on a Sony A7 and while it is still a very nice lens, I have to be very careful shooting wide open. I noticed a fair amount of light fall off in the corners when shooting below f/8 against a solid blue sky. It should also be a given that the corner sharpness leaves a little bit to be desired on a lens of this age when shooting at larger apertures. Mine is a slightly later version than yours (circa 1981), although I think overall the differences are negligible, I think I read a review from someone who thought the earlier version was sharper wide open, although the later version pulls ahead as the lens is stopped down.

    While it seems backwards, I think my Rokkor 58 f/1.4 from around 1967 may be a little bit sharper and not suffer from as much fall off. I have heard this from other reviewers as well. I will really know when I can do a side by side comparison.


    • Jay

      Hi Kevin and you are correct, but for the money it’s incredible these days consider the price of the native glass and all.

      The light fall off is significant, but does taper down and I honestly don’t mind it at all. I would love to get all the lenses from that era and compare 😉

      Thanks for sharing the info and comments!

  14. Giridhar

    Hello Jay,
    Great pictures!

    I am new to Sony A6000 and looking for an extra lens other than the kit 16-50.

    I am getting a good deal on Ebay.in.
    I would go with Fotasy Minolta MD MC lens to Sony NEX E-Mount Adapter.

    Are they all good choices?

    I know I will loose the fast autofocus compatiblity but does MINOLTA MC ROKKOR-PG 50mmF1.4 is easy to manual focus?

    Thanks a lot and cheers,

    Giri


    • Jay

      Hello Giridhar,

      Yes that is a great affordable option for a lens adapter in my opinion. Yes the manual focus lenses are easy to focus, especially with the tools the Sony cameras provide like Focus Peaking, and Magnify Zoom.

      Jay


      • Giridhar

        I have completely forgotten that I have posted something here, never got any notification for your reply, sigh.

        Found this insightful page again while ogling for A6000 and lens choices, really all of these pictures which you have take are just fantastic!

        I live in India and I don’t find better options for the same lens (say on ebay.in), is there any other way to purchase it online?

        Cheers again!
