Minolta MD 35-70/3.5 Macro vs Maxxum 35-70/4 Macro ?
2 months ago

I used MD 70-210/4 Macro, a great lens with beautiful bokeh. Just bought the AF version of that lens, the Beercan, and from what I can see it's aboDut as good optically and focuses fairly fast with LA-EA2 (surprisingly, faster than it does on Konica Minolta 7D).

My most loved lens is MD 35-70/3.5 Macro, I love using it for portraits and genera wal walkabouts. The question I have is, will Maxxum 35-70/4 Macro be the same optically ?
