Minolta MC Tele Rokkor-QF 200mm F3.5

As you may spot from the frame count, I’ve only had this lens out once so far. I bought it as an attempt at a cheap telephoto for the GFX 50S until I both could afford a GF lens and a suitable one existed (the GF 100-200 was only announced in January).

Resolution seems very good—plenty of detail pulled out with the GFX sensor—and it’s nice and sharp. Alas, it doesn't come close to covering the full 44x33mm sensor, with hard vignetting knocking a significant portion of the frame out of use, getting worse as you stop down.

It’s not unusable though. In 35mm mode on a GFX you’ll still be getting 31.5MP images and cropping usefully from the full frame you should safely get a 37-38MP image. Depending on your needs and budget, not actually a bad option. I also need to give it a try on the X-series cameras.
