Damn Minolta really knew how to make a good lens look good. I'm pretty sure theres not a better looking 50mm out there (except of course all the f1.2 monsters and the Noctilux).
It even looks nice from weird angles!
(By the way, I realize how pointless this post is.)
(Oh and if you don't think this is the best looking 50mm ever, feel free to try to prove me wrong; you will fail.)
