Minolta AF 35-70mm F3.5-4.5 A-mount lens review by Karel
|Karel#7501 date: May-27-2010|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||28-80 silver|
35-80 power zoom
|price paid:||25 Euro (used)|
Quality of the optics
|comment:||Perfect basic walk around zoom for a film camera.|
Combined with a (film)3i camera, setting on A, f6,7, this set is a perfect street shooter or e.g. a companion during a multi day trip.
You can find this lens in good condition for 25 Euro.
If I compare the optical quality and the results (with foto's 13 x 18 cm) this lens is not so prone to flare and this makes performance sometimes better than an expensive "opponent".
The limited zoom range is reflected in the weight of the lens.
I gave the build quality a 4 due to the plastic barrel.
