Servicing Minolta MD Zoom lenses
MD zoom lenses can soon be restored to original condition.
Image above is a partially disassembled Minolta MD 28-85 f3.5-4.5 zoom lens. The small part together with two similar parts is responsible for solid feel of the zoom focusing. If the part is worn or loose there is play in the focus ring and front element likely affecting image quality.
MD 35-70 f3.5 Macro and MD 28-85 f3.5-4.5 zoom lenses have been studied and good ideas exist how to fully service and restore superb Minolta manual focus zoom lenses to original condition.
If there is interest in getting a restored MD zoom, parts and tools for the job can be fabricated.
