First pic with macro mode
Taken with GH1.
Here are the 100% crop of the above images.
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.
Minolta 35-70 f/3.5 macro tests - a set on Flickr
This is my first post, so I'll try to attach a few of the best examples below, wish me luck!
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

Here's two from the last couple of days over on HK Island.
Non-Rokkor version. Levels adjusted.
Just acquired the 35-70mm macro non-Rokkor version.
First, in macro mode:

Taken with the E-M10. The colours are untouched OOC, but with increased clarity a bit in LR for the first image.
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.

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
