With Vintage Film Camera Lenses
Fourth in a series of discoveries by the color of the lens lettering!
There were discoveries in old and new Minolta lenses.
At our vintage shop Japan lnc.
I will explain using the lens on sale.
Minolta MC ROKKOR-PG 50mm f/1.4
Minolta New MD 50mm f/1.7
There were differences between old and new lenses from Minolta, whose manufacturer is the same.
NEW MD Lens
The difference between the MC lens and the NEW MD lens is
The distance indicator (distance reference) is the ft section above the upper section.
MC lense will be green
NEW MD lense are orange.
It is a common part of both lenses
The number (middle section) representing the focal distance is represented in orange (indication of 50)
The m part below the upper row, which represents the distance indicator (distance indication), is white.
The aperture value in the lower row is white
This time, we were able to discover differences in the color of the numbers between the old and new, even though the manufacturer was the same.
How about a little discovery that piqued your interest in vintage lenses!
