Minolta AF 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5

(9 customer reviews)

The photo lens has a range of 20-35mm, which is suitable for landscape, architecture and interior photography. It has a good build quality and is made of high-quality glass elements. The lens coating helps to reduce flares and ghosting, which can improve the image quality. The autofocus is fast and accurate, but manual focus is also available if needed. The bokeh, or the quality of the out-of-focus areas, is decent but not outstanding. The aperture range of f/3.5-4.5 allows for some control over depth of field. The resolution of the camera glass is good, producing sharp and detailed images. This lens is a good alternative to other wide angle zoom lenses in the market and was manufactured in the past.

– The Minolta AF 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 lens has become a go-to lens for me along with my 50mm.
– I use this focal length for just about anything and it is definitely great value for the price.
– The lens does a nice job, and I don’t regret purchasing it.

– The lens is not the sharpest I have used.

Overall, the Minolta AF 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 lens is a great lens for the price and does the job nicely. While it may not be the sharpest lens, it is still a good buy and I am happy with the purchase.

Optical design

    Awesome lens for landscapes and portriots and semi close ups. This is my first experience with a lens with a 20-35 range. I found this lens to be awesome. I am not a pro but find my photos to be crisp and clear with little distortion. I use this lens with my canon 6D full frame camera for a winning combination. The build quality is as great as the pictures I get. The cost used at a little over $300. Was well worth the money. This is my walk around lens and I am happy with it. I read several reviews on this lens before buying it. They were mostly good reviews.

    I like tokina pro lenses Have a few tokina for ff Sony. This is nice and wide for ff. Range limited on APS cameras. Mine needed focus tuning in camera -10/20. A99 then focuses fast and consistently, much better than on an older Sony a55.
