Model Reviewed: AF 35mm f/1.4 G Maxxum
Strength:

Sharpness, pretty good value for this aperture, very versatile, and quite smart looking.

Weakness:

Quite unnecessarily heavy, AF behind other makes. Lack of manual override.

Great value for the money, very good optically, I use this lens as my standard lens. Highly recommended for all Minolta users.

A little bit heavy for me

This focal length is best mattching for me to use snapshot .And function f/1.4 is gave me a fast shutter speed chance,even if,used under evening condition.Also, this lens presents 1ft aproaching shot ,uh nice.

Strength:

an excellent lens which makes "always" a satisfactory photo as I wish in "any" situation

Weakness:

a heavy and expensive lens for those who are satisfied with a zoom lens (even with a high speed one)

This is my standard lens. I give all my confidence to this bicause it makes "always" a picture "as I wish." From wide open to small aperture, the main subject is always sharp enough (resolution is assured of course from edge to edges but it knows a discretion) and appealing, standing clearly out from its background. The touch is fully controlable. Good for both colour and monochrome photo. I don't recommend it as far as you are satisfied with a zoom lens (even with a high speed one). Buy and try it when you know how important is a touch control.
