    Some sample images

    Picked one up from keh.com last week. I have been having fun with it this weekend. I like it a lot, especially the macro mode. Images are very bright and colours are great.

    The lens I have is NOT a ROKKOR-X but it is the 35-70mm



    Heres a quick video I shot, showing the nice smooth focus of the lens too

    I have the macro version, bought last year. I did some test shots back then and liked it.

    I took it out again yesterday and put on the E-M10 for some quick shots. I set it at 1:4 magnification, f5.6, auto WB, A priority, focal length at 70mm.

    The shots below had sharpening (25-30) in Snapseed and left the rest as is because I like the colours coming out from Minolta lenses.

    built in flash on

    slight crop due to unwanted brown twig on top right corner

    I'd forgotten that I had this lens ... purchased during a GAS fit and it was stored away for close to a year! So out it came for a photo walk around the neighborhood.

    I have never used a zoom prime before but had heard very good things about this lens and was especially interested in the macro feature (Note I do not have the Rokkor version). It was very enjoyable and the lens performed fantastically .. at least to my eye and expectations. I put some shots into a flickr album but here are my favorites from today.

    The first 2 are jpgs straight from the camera (love those Oly colors). The last 2 I tweaked with some clarity in Lightroom
