p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · MD 35-70 macro lens - is this normal?


Looking to purchase a Minolta MD 35-70 macro lens, found online for a good price but not sure if it's faulty or not.
On their description it says "operationally it might be a little bit loose and wobbly if you shake it".
Is this common with this lens? worth the shot or should i just skip this.

Mine does not do that, I'd skip this one.

Its pretty normal. You can tighten up the screws very, very easily. Probably get a good discount because of that. I have had 1 macro, and two non-macros (2nd version). One wobbled. I tightened it up, and now can't tell which one used to wobble.

Was it the zoom ring wobbling? I tried to tighten the screws and it did not work. Is there any disassembly guide for this lens?

I had disassembled one a few years back. I believe the screws are under the rubber grip. I had found a website in mandarin with pictures on the web at that time.
