Minolta SR 58mm lenses comparison:
Comparison of lenses Minolta MC Rokkor PG 58mm 1:1.2, Minolta MC Rokkor PF 58mm 1:1.4

This is the well known, enough cheap, and very popular ‘near fifty’ lens, which can be an easy find in auctions or flea-markets around the whole world. I’ve read a lot of different opinions from skeptical to over-positive and this review is another one try to sort out with this lens.
