Minolta AF 35-70mm F4 A-mount lens review by JeanChristophe
|JeanChristophe#41974 date: Dec-28-2017|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 35-105 (beercan) and 28-105 (modern).|
|price paid:||20 EUR|
|positive:||- Metal (beercan)|
- Simply to use, 49mm filter screw.
|negative:||- Zoom range X2|
- Only outdoor : sharpness becomes interesting at f/7.1 for portrait, too soft indoor
- Has lost its "soul" (street photography) with X1,6 cropping factor (digital sensors).
- What's the interest for this macro mode ?
|comment:||Not so sharp for portrait : requires at least f/7.1 stop down.|
I prefer some other old lenses for portrait : Minolta 100-200, 35-105, 28-105.
Is no more a "street photography" lens (35-70mm equiv 24x36 SLR = 55-110mm equiv digital sensor DSLR).
What is the interest for this lens today ?
