I'm very curious to hear what you think Attila. Zuiko has a great reputation. Zoom is zoom though aye?

got a beat up copy of this lens today - the glass looks clean, wish me luck.

taken with cz3.4/35-70 Smile


will try to play with this and see how it measures up against my copy of cz 3.4/35-70 and angenieux 2.5/35-70.

Physically, this lens is smallest among the three 35-70 that I now have.

I don't know if I have the right to post here, but without the photos from other members, I would never had any ideas of the lens performance before buying...

First post images are blocked, Anti-spam measure. Should be OK.
I am unsure which version of this I have but it seemed pretty good. I'm at work now but will try to check when I get home.

Thank you, this is straight from the camera, no processing at all.

Is it better than a MD Zoom 35-70mm f3.5?

No. A month ago I tested five old 35-70mm including Minolta macro 35-70mm F3.5 Olympus 35-70mm F3.6 In principle, I only tested the sharpness in the far field and by this measure, he (Olympus) slightly outperformed the Minolta. I put test because I wanted to quickly sell junk )
