Additional information:

 

The Minolta MD ZOOM 35-70 mm f/ 3.5  is zoom lens for small-format SLR Minolta SR cameras. Angle of view: 63º-34º

The lens came in three variants:

  1. MD ZOOM Rokkor(-X) (1978-1981)
  2. MD ZOOM (1981-1983)
  3. MD ZOOM (1983-1997)

The first two variants are just slightly different from each other. The third lens features a 7-blade aperture, a minimum focusing distance of 0.8 m and a macro mode. The lens was manufactured in the period of Minolta's collaboration with Leica, and the latter took advantage of making a replica of the Minolta lens for its own SLR cameras (35-70mm f/3.5 Vario-Elmar-R).
