I am seeking a Minolta 35mm f/2.8 lens which fits a XE1 Minolta camera.

Look for ones labeled as Minolta Rokkor.

However I have been unable to find this

There are dozens available on US eBay ... but don't buy one described as as-is or parts.


and purchased a Minolta Camera Lens in good condition 35-70mm, 1:4 (22) 49mm, AF lens: 35-70. Will this do the same job?

An f/4 zoom lens can't do some of the things that an f/2.8 single focal length lens can do. And vice-versa.

Will this lens even fit the XE1?

No, it won't fit or work at all. You can't use AF (autofocus) lenses on that camera.
