Just a bit of sandpaper and it'll shine once again :D

Don't waste the sandpaper, you never know when you will need a map in the desert.

Been a while since this thread was active, time to kick it back into life I guess.

"new" camera gear I've added to the collection lately. 18-70 kitlens I had blew it's AF gears so I went ebay hunting.

DSC00457_zps70f1cc73.jpg

Added 2 more lenses aswell but these 2 are classic around 20 year old glass.

Minolta 35-70mm f4 front and Minolta 70-210mm f4 at the back.

70-210 came with a busted aperature and needed some DIY surgery in order to come back to life again, just the aperature arm that had come loose from the iris pin so it was relatively simple.

Nice cholla and yucca's Led! I'd love to go for a visit to those parts of the states but that's just a pipedream that likely never will happen, I'll have to make do with my own little slice of desert in the backyard :rolleyes:

Here's a straight cut and paste from a post in another forum outligning this afternoons antics.

Having recently picked up 2 older telezooms to go along with my long kitlens I figured that for and giggles I'd set them up side by side for a straight out of the camera comparison. They are more or less 3 decades worth of Alpha mount zoom's, only more or less as 2 were released back in the 80's and the kitlens around 2007.

Here's the 3 lenses in question.
DSC00469_zps9bc7834d.jpg
Left to right: Sony DT 55-200/4-5.6 (released 2007), Minolta AF 100-300/4.5-5.6 (released 1988) and Minolta AF 70-210/4 (released 1985)
70-210 much longer than the rest but both the others extend when zooming, the oldtimer stays the same length through the whole range..it can also manage f4 through the whole range as opposed to the others.

Mounted to my oldish Sony A350 that sat on a tripod I metered out an exposure at f5.6, dialed in the resulting exposure into the manual mode in order to get identical settings for all 3 and shot a single frame at both 100mm and 200mm using all 3 lenses on the same focus point.

Here's the 2 shots from the Sony DT 55-200/4-5.6, straight out of the camera and just resized to 800px wide.

Minolta AF 100-300/4.5-5.6 results

DSC00463_zps03676c1d.jpg

And the oldest of the bunch, Minolta AF 70-210/4, backed it off a tad from the max 210 but still ended up a fraction closer than the previous 2.

DSC00467_zpsba2bc9cd.jpg

Hard to really see a difference in these relatively small images so heres 2 better comparisons.
The "wide" angle of things, Sony on the left, Minolta 70-210 in the middle and Minolta 100-300 on the right.
comp1_zps168549c8.jpg

And even more telling, a close crop of the 200mm shots (70-210 frame scaled down to 98% to match)
comp2_zps25dff96e.gif
Animated .gif to make it more apparent but forgot to set it to run over and over again so you might have to reload it to get the effect.

Have to say I prefer the old 70-210 in both colour and sharpness, plus it's built like a tank (think I could hammer nails with it without ill effect). Just a shame it weighs more than the camera itself so it feels seriously nose heavy.

Going to attempt the same thing again later on but with something set in direct sunlight, this afternoons focal point was in the shade.

Single shot from a trip up the mountains this week, was at the right place at the right time to capture some rainbow effects from one of the local falls.

DSC00721_zps07f94948.jpg

2 random's from the last week or so. First just a test shot using a recently bought classic Minolta lens that unfortunately turned up fungus infested, going to have to shell out to have it professionally cleaned :maybe: Second one taken yesterday at a local botanical garden me and the wife stopped in at after having picked up another piece of vintage Minolta AF glass.

DSC01330_zps4e64ab53.jpg

DSC01391_zps115afa0b.jpg

Both taken with nearly 30 year old Minolta glass, 75-300mm "Big Beercan" for the first and 35-70mm "Baby Beercan" for the second
