Well, the good news is that it does cover the sensor (small amount of vingetting wide open, easy to correct). The bad news is the quality image circle does not! (soft and smudged in extreme corners). This is not much of a problem if shooting f1.4-2.8 ish as it generally falls out of the subject matter. (the center is sharp even at f1.4). For stopped down shooting f8 and beyond, a little cropping is required (16:9 works well). I am still learning with this lens so it is work in progress but I have had some quite satisfying images with it.Does that Minolta 58mm actually cover the MF sensor or are your pix crops?
