Ciyoko 85mm 1:2.8 vs Minolta MD 85mm 1:2.0 – or, in other words – Super Rokkor and MD III – one of the first versus one of the best. Not a battle actually, better to call it friendly match. It is clear in advance that the more modern MD version will win but it isn’t a problem because these two lenses are absolutely different – mount, age, speed, materials, logo – everything is different, except for two points: both are Minolta and both are 85mm.

Chiyoko 50mm lenses comparison:
- Chiyoko Super Rokkor 50mm 1:2.0 (Minolta)
- Chiyoko Super Rokkor 50mm 1:2.8 (Minolta)
I have warm feelings for both lenses, and it isn’t secret that 50/2.0 is more powerful, but it may be interesting to see the difference in real samples.

This lens isn’t interesting for modern photographers, and nobody expects a great IQ from such a class of optics, but the lens has a personal place in the history of photo-industry.
