The zoom resolves very good in overcast or shadow. But in highlight no so much. Some CA.

Just into the past 1.5 years, the price of the Yashica MC (not ML) Zoom 35-70 did rise from usually <20 EUR to around 60, even 90 bucks atm....really insane! It's a good lens, but the Minolta MD-III 35-70/3.5 is truly better - and cheaper...with or without macro feature.

Otherwise, the original ML 35-70/3.5 is really a rare lens today, and expensive. I'd go for the Minolta MD 35-70/3.5 instead, because it's quite much avialable for good prices...but the ML does have of course better build quality (all metal, not partially plastics)
