#VintageLensTest - Three frames with a Minolta MD 28-85mm F3.5~4.5, on what are minimalist images.

Another batch of shots with the Minolta MD 28-85mm F3.5~4.5 has turned out to be a real surprise. This highly underrated lens, largely overshadowed by much more applauded MD 35-70mm, is a well-built 13-elements in 10-groups two-touch zoom construction, with an optical design that includes aspherical and floating elements. On its own, this zoom provides coverage of popular focal length distances. The lens also comes with a macro mode.

Though comparatively bulky when adapted to the smallish Pen E-P5, it is still a nice fit, and comfortable to hold. Images on the 2x crop-sensor are full-frame equivalents of 56, 70, 100, 140, and 165mm. Holding the camera steady at the long end of the zoom could be quite a situation as you will need very steady hands or have the camera well supported.
