Minolta 50 F1.4
Zeiss Tessar 45 F2.8
|price paid:||200€ (used)|

|comment:||The lens is light, sharp, has a beautiful bokeh and doubles as a good walk around optics.|
Compared with the old and cheaper Minolta 50 F2.8 Macro, the Tamron is similarly sharp but shows less contrast and I prefer the slightly more vibrant Minolta colours. Auto focus of both lenses is comparable but the Minolta hunts much less.
If it wasn't for the bokeh and portrait capabilities I would drop the Tamron and keep the Minolta.
