    Nice. :)
    Used in "macro" mode since you have to use a lens in the adapter for infinity focus?

    This Minolta lens was modified by one of the hobbyists in the US and worked well with the Canon 5DM2 without any adapter. Of course, he did not work to infinity, but you could do portraits.

    Tip:

    You could've cut your shutter speed in half and thus your ISO in half and thus noise in half =) but nice shot nonetheless.

    Yes, you are right. Especially, Canon's grain from ISO 800, and up, is not so pleasant to see in the image.

    In this picture I intentionally wanted a bit of "analog" grain. Despite what I read, grain in Canon cameras is interesting, sometimes even slightly artistic.
