The User's Review: Minolta Mini Beer Can Maxxum AF 35 - 70 mm f4 Macro Zoom Lens, Released in 1985
Like its bigger brothers, this mini lens is well built although the lens barrel is made of plastic. Push the Macro lock to set the focus range into or out of macro. In the macro, AF does not work. The dedicated hood can be put on backward to reduce the length and to protection the lens when the hood is not in use. The front piece of the lens not only turns when focusing but also extends when zooming.
