Comparison of lenses Minolta MC Rokkor PG 58mm 1:1.2, Minolta MC Rokkor PF 58mm 1:1.4

I love both lenses, each for a different reason, but this is a rare case when it is not possible to say something like “one of the lenses is a little worse, but a gap isn’t so big to think about it“. No. Here we see a total victory of the faster version.

This comparison is correct only for conditions and equipment used for tests. Test results can differ if any element is changed
