    A couple from visiting villages in the lower Laurentians of Québec

    All with A7r with Off brand MD-NEX adapter
    Surprised by sharpness and had a lot less problem with flare than i expected compared to my 28-85

    Very, very nice shots... has me eyeing this lens as a GAS pick-up. How do you all think it compares to the infamous MD Zoom 35-70?

    Oh, who am I kidding... I've gotta get off the GAS for at least a little while here. ;)

    Had the 35-70 a long time ago before i acquired this lens for film cameras.

    My feeling in this set-up is it is pretty close but with longer reach

    Many times when just driving around and wanting to bring the camera along in case I see Bigfoot, UFO or something like that, I bring with me one lens..the same range as that one, the Canon FD 35-105mm F3.5. Its a nice "kit" lens and the MD looks sweet from those images.

    How does it perform at 35 ? Have the 35-70 one which shows heavy distortion.
    Thanks

    Did not try it enough yet to see anything out of the ordinary. Actually i am comparing it with a MD 28-85 to see which i will keep.
