Second fail less than two weeks into the new year , just had delivered a Lomography ART Petzval 85mm F/2.2 in Canon EF mount .
I'll be using it both on my a7Riv and EOS film cameras .

I really need to start selling stuff instead of buying !

A shot taken with the Minolta RF Rokkor 250mm f5.6 Reflex and Sony a7Riv on the way back from Glossop .
Hand held shots at night , with the advantage of the cameras image stabilisation and good high ISO .

A view between the hills of Manchester City centre ( or maybe Hyde ?!) from Charlesworth .
The green space at a closer distance is probably Werneth Low , which is a parkland on top of a hill.

I decided not to buy anymore gear this year , but to sell off unused gear instead .
I've too much stuff cluttering the place up that's not been used for years .

Well , so much for that one !

I've often eyed up the Minolta 250mm Reflex lens , but typically selling for close to £1000 , I've never bothered , especially as I have such as the Minolta 200mm f/2.8 , which is a fairly small , light lens .
Though clearly not as small and light as the reflex .

Then at Christmas , one came up for £500 .
I resisted buying it , a week later , it was still on my watch list , and I gave in and bought it !
And I'm glad I did .

Here's a few from it .

Yes, its not photo, but video...anyhow...from around 2.40 minutes to 5.30 it is shot using the Minolta AF500f8

Who thought it could be used as a video lens ?

(yea, yea.....not using a fluid-head gives jagged panning shots...)

Rokkor-X 500/8 with 2x M/A converter-S (1000mm f16 glass) on nex7 + A>E mount adapter
Too late for last year's Day Prime, too early for this year's
The doubler makes the donuts irregular
"Conventional" pictures are pretty blah, obviously
I didn't intend it to be this much of an experiment, but I left without a tripod or monopod, so all handheld, no stabilization (frowny face)....

Thank you, Simon. The rookery is nearby, so I go when the sun is low. The difference between shooting the birds in the trees and the branches near the water is remarkable. I love when the birds perch in that area. I shoot through the weeds, creating front bokeh, which I love.

More from the Canon 8/500 and A7 II

I have a new (old) mirror lens. After a fellow mirror enthusiast suggested the Canon 8/500, I found one at an excellent price and couldn't resist, even though I already have ## 8/500 mirrors (don't know the number offhand). I have been pleasantly surprised at how sharp it is.

We're in the birds mating season now and throughout the rest of the month. There is a rookery only minutes from my home, so I have been able to visit on week evenings.

All from Canon 8/500 and A7 II.
