I would like to sign up.

I have the following primes in the fifty range:
Sony 50/1.4 Planar
Sony 55/1.8 Sonnar
Konica Hexanon AR 57/1.2

The Hexanon is rather sexy, but I suspect I will primarily use the Planar for this week's shooting

I guess I should join in as well. I will try to use a different 50 every day.
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

I haven't participated in Week 50mm in ages, not since 2013 according to my Zenfolio folders. So, let me give it a shot for this season.

My likely rigs:

-- Min 50 1.7 on my A77ii
-- Rokkor 50mm 1.4 with adapter on my NEX-3 or NEX-6
NEX-3, 6 | A77ii | Dynax 505si super | Maxxum 9 | many, many lenses ;-)

Sign me up.

I'll use my new A7II with a variety of lenses. I am looking for a good budget AF 50 for it. I have plenty of options to focus manually. The Sony AF 50 F1.4 seems to be the best of those.

Canon EF 50 F1.8 STM and Sony FE 50 F1.8 obtained. FE 50 F1.8 returned.

I think I'm settling on these options. Not sure the best way to post film shots yet ... maybe during Week 2 or 3 in 2019


Sony NEX-6 | Sony 50mm 1.8


Minolta Maxxum 9 | Minolta 50 1.7
NEX-3, 6 | A77ii | Dynax 505si super | Maxxum 9 | many, many lenses ;-)

Count me in.

I haven't made a choice of lens yet but either Helios 44, Minolta 50/1.7 or Domiplan 50/2.8.
There's no such thing as too many lenses.

I have the Minolta 50mm f1.7, f2.8 macro, and Sony f1.8 in A-mount, plus a rather dinky Miranda f2 (PK) which fits the Nex 6 with an adapter, and at least two M42-fit 50s including the Zeiss Tessar f2.8 and a charity-shop special with added fungus... Then I can always use the original Miranda f1.9 or f1.8 lenses with a spacer for macro work, so I figure I have plenty of choices for hardware.

The issue will be finding something worth taking pictures of in dark and dismal England. Wait! Christmas lights!

I haven't done a challenge since 2012, it's probably time to get back in. I'll try to take all my 4 50's on a spin. Minolta MC Rokkor PG 1.4 and MD Rokkor 1.7 on Sony A7, Sony 1.4 and Sigma 2.8 Macro (1st gen AF) on A99II.
