    Well, I know the JC-Penny lenses are one of those third party lenses with an american name slapped on it in the hopes of better americain sales. Now I generally steer clear of them but I saw one for the Minolta and now I am considering it just because of what it is.

    So any one by chance got samples taken with a JC-Penny 80-200 f/4.5?

    I have a few JC penny screwmounts that perform just fine.... but they are all prime lenses. Lens coatings were a bit lacking (if they had them) and were not up to standards with the Pentax SMC line. Keep in mind that zoom lenses were just in their infant stages of development during this time. As such, image quality was often sacrificed.

    Screwmount zooms really haven't attracted my attention nor interest and don't really make it into my collection.

    Sorry.. wish I had more (like a sample).

    It is. Years and Years ago I was a merchandising manger at Penny's when they had hard lines. (that should date it for some of you) I had Hardware, Lawn & Garden, Luggage and CAMERAS as my lines. I can't attest to the quality, as I never used it, but I find it amazing that there is one still around. :D
