Minolta AF 35-105mm F3.5-4.5 A-mount lens review by Kilkry
|Kilkry#16294 date: Jul-3-2015|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Will compare to MD 35-135|
|price paid:||Not a steeply priced|
|positive:||-AF is not super slow|
-Bokeh is super nice in a mellow way in macro mode and rather nice in non-macro mode.
-Color.. it really is the first time "Minolta colors" has any meaning to me.
-It isn't large and balances rather nicely on the A6000 with the LA-EA2.
|negative:||-My copy isn't super sharp until f/8 but neither is it as bad as my Beercan was beyond 150mm at equal apertures|
-AF is not super quiet
|comment:||I've been using it with the LA-EA2 and both it and the lens are a bit noisy and the combo works okay. My copy looks a fair bit used and I don't know if it is representative as far as sharpness goes but it isn't what I'd call "soft" even wide open.|
Green becomes a darker shade of green with this lens and it does things with other colors too; something I like.
I will try and compare it with the MD 35-135 during the summer and revise this review following.
