My father and I hiked up a local mountain yesterday and spent the night for father’s day; a storm blew up about 4am, but it was all good! I had fun, and I’m glad to have spent the day with my dad.
So, I received and finished working on my new favorite lens, a Minolta 50mm 2.8 Macro. When I got it, it was in perfect condition, except the focus was extremely tight. After some tinkering and some nerve-wracking dremel work, I managed to get the focus ring straightened out and everything works great now! These are some aphids that were residing on the tomato blossoms out back. For scale, that petal is about 1/2″ long.
