Twigs Test – Take 4

Day four of the twigs test, today’s lens is my Minolta AF 35-70mm F/4 Macro (Mini Beercan). Nicknamed The Mini Beercan, this lens is originally built for film SLR but due to its great performance … its still accepted as one of the best performing Minolta lens even on a DSLR. This lens works very well on APS-C cameras, but the focal range is not very desirable it has the equivalent in Full Frame terms of 52.5-105mm. I I would rather use the Konica Minolta AF DT 18-70mm (Take 2) lens because it’s a lot wider.

This set was taken from the same location as for the other takes, focusing on the same center Y-branch.

All photos were taken with my Sony SLT α77 and Minolta AF 35-70mm F/4 lens, at 52mm (35mm FF), 75mm (50mm FF) & 105mm (70mm FF), using Aperture mode, with a setting of f/8 and f/16, White Balance set to cloudy, ISO to 200.
