Does anyone have experience with the professional zoomlens 35-70mm f/3.5 which was produced between 1977 and 1986, when the f/2.8 was introduced. I have an Ai-S copy of 1984 and I am positively surprised by it's quality, in the short period I tested it now on the d700, here two examples

f/11 1/30 Iso 3600, probably around 50mm
