(3 customer reviews)

The Minolta AF 35-80mm f/4-5.6 II is a camera glass that can be used with different camera mounts. It has an autofocus feature, but you can also use it manually. The lens elements are made up of multiple pieces of glass, which help produce high-quality images. The lens coating helps to reduce glare and reflections, resulting in sharper and clearer photos. This lens was manufactured in the past, but it is still available for purchase as a used item. The aperture ranges from f/4 to f/5.6, which means that you can adjust the amount of light that enters the lens. The build quality is good, and it is durable enough to withstand regular use. The resolution is decent, and you can expect to get sharp images with this lens. If you are looking for alternatives, you can consider other prime zoom lenses with similar focal lengths. The bokeh, or the quality of the out-of-focus areas, is good, and you can achieve a nice blur effect in your photos. Overall, the Minolta AF 35-80mm f/4-5.6 II is a reliable and affordable option for those who want to experiment with different focal lengths.
