Minolta MD 20mm 1:2.8 two copies comparison (New-MD, MD III or Plain MD design)
The description of a LensRomantic test is here. These comparisons are for collectors or tech-enthusiasts. Photographers may go directly to a lens review.
Minolta New-MD 20mm F2.8 is a well known wide-angle lens, I always recommend it because of the nice balance of characteristics. It’s small, lightweight, it has a great IQ and a reasonable price.
