Landscape Photography with a Vintage Lens and Sony a6000

Again, I got sunny and clear skies in the Pyrenees, so I thought it'd be nice to use a vintage lens that I'd been wanting to try for landscape photography.

The lens is a Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.4 mounted on a Minolta MD/MC to Sony E adaptor.

I shot it wide open and stepping it down. The results were soft when wide open but I love that look. It's a sharp lens when stepped down.

Still, the focal lenght when mounted on a crop sensor camera like the Sony a6000 makes it a less than ideal lens for landscape photography. And I mean, as the only lens. 90mm can be a very nice focal lenght for landscapes when you combine it with something else.

Below, you can see some of the images I got and that I show in the video.
