The autofucus version of your MD 35-105 Minolta was my favorite intermediate zoom on my Sony A700 camera, always vivid, saturated "Minolta" colors. Whenever your snow goes away, maybe the color will return along with the song birds!

Just a couple of months and we're there... Well, at least the sun comes out a bit more often from now on, I hope.

I must say the 35-105 made an impression; it's often said that consumer grade zoom lenses of 70's/early 80's are way inferior to modern ones but that doesn't seem to always be the case. I would be glad to have that kind of mid-tele in native E-mount. It could be a little lighter, though.
