Minolta MC.W Rokkor 35mm f/2.8

This was my first legacy lens, which I bought for £50.99 in July 2014 after playing around with Beth's Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.8. It focuses down to about 8" so I used this quite a lot as a macro lens when I was taking photos of every flower in the garden in 2014.

Beth's played with this lens too. Her comment was that it reminded her of an SLR kit lens, unsurprising as the effective focal length is 52.5mm so close enough to 50mm to make no real difference.
