    • I really didn’t know. I knew that the flare was happening and that the Old Minolta Glass was going to make it interesting (and probably pretty “retro” looking) but it wasn’t until I put them the image through some post-processing in LR and SEP (mostly more contrast) that the flare really started to pop. One of the reasons I LOVE SEP so much (Thank you VERY much for pushing me to use it) is all the things that I don’t see in an original RAW file that become apparent in post. It’s like a Christmas Miracle in every image. 🙂


            • WEll, hmmm, It is electronic. At least it is an AF lens. The last of the minolta film slr’s and their early dslr’s and Sony Alpha mount dslr’s all use the same lens mount. Not sure why the metadata isn’t where you’re looking for it. Undoubtedly it’s something I’m doing (or not doing). Possibly an export setting from LR? Metadata is an aspect of digital photography that I’ve never quite understood tbh.


          • I didn’t mean to imply that I was looking for metadata – I wasn’t clear. Just thinking out loud that one wouldn’t have it available in LR after shooting, because that was my experience with a different old lens. But obviously, I don’t know what I’m talking about. 🙂 I like to have basic info like what the aperture or shutter speed was. With modern lenses, it’s easy to access in LR. But none of that shows up for the really old, manual focus lenses. The camera has no idea what’s going on out there in lensland! And no way am I going to stop and write down what setting I’m using – just not my style. 😉
