Legacy lenses on the X-Pro1

Tested the Minolta 28mm manual focus F3.5 lens, manufactured in the 70s. Not fast. Must shoot at F 8, therefore requires higher ISO settings. Paid $24 plus $9 for adaptor. Plus $10 for shipping for the lens. Results? 

Shot at a carnival in Yucca Valley. Not many people. But I discovered how garish, Halloween-like are the colors of the equipment at these mobile carneys. The colors were so odd and non-beautiful the only thing I could do is convert to b and w, using Nik Silvereffects Pro. Then I had to use yellow or green filters to get anywhere, to offset those garish colors. But you can see the results below and by going to see even more images at jimsmartphotography.com and look for the post labeled “mobile carnival.”
