Crikey! These photos were shot exactly a year ago and I've forgotten about them! (Or maybe I chose to forget about these horrible shots...) I don't own this camera/lens set so I can't give any first impressions about them. But the lens, I would say had excellent optics when I did freelensing with my Nikon D5200. If you want thorough reviews from people who have used them, you can find the links at the end of this post...


Minolta X-700

The Minolta X700 was introduced in 1981 as Minolta's top film SLR. It was meant to compete with Canon's poular AE-1, plus a few more features to kick some ass. It uses Minolta MD mount and has manual/aperture/program exposure modes. Minolta SLR's were still using M/MD mount at this point, then the new Minolta/Sony A mount came afterward, which was a totally different and incompatible mount.

Minolta MD Zoom
35-70mm f/3.5 Macro (3rd Version)

There appears to be 3 versions of this constant aperture zoom lens. The first being introduced in 1978, and the last (this one), introduced in 1983 with a Macro feature. I'm impressed when I briefly tried the lens on my Nikon D5200. However, even if I could adapt the lens on my camera, the range would be equivalent to 52-105mm, BITIN!
