Minolta MD ZOOM 35-70 mm f / 3.5
Jul 13, 2014

I have never been big fan of legacy zoom lenses until I came across this gem.

The lens was designed in collaboration with Leitz (Leica Vario-Elmar-R 35-70 mm f / 3.5) and is highly regarded for its optical qualities.

On APS-C the focal length is 53-105. Here is couple shots in macro mode @ f/5.6:

and 100% crop

another one

and 100% crop

I am still learning the lens but so far I am very pleased. It looks like all praises are fully justified.

Thanks,
