An acquaintance of mine has a Minolta XD-700 ( I think this is correct model) manual focus camera, and wants a zoom lens in the 24-200 or 28-200mm range. He shoots old buildings, community events, parades, etc. Close focus or macro mode would be a plus, as he also copies old photographs of local interest. He is currently using a 35-70 or 35-105 and wants a greater FL range. It is my understanding this camera requires an MD series lens. In looking for something in the MD type lens, I am seeing older Tamron and Tokina lenses and do not know if any would be acceptable compared to the newer AF designs. Is there anything you could recommend that has reasonably good IQ. Any suggestions or experiences would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
