A few months ago I found one of these for sale (full website here) for believe it or not 80 swiss francs (≈$80 these days). OK, I thought, I'll take a risk (No brainer really as 80 francs will barely buy you few beers and a pizza here). When I got hold of it I simply put it on my old D40x just to check it would take a picture, then stuffed it in the cupboard and kind of forgot about it. Anyway last Sunday I remembered about it and decided to take it for a well overdue test drive. Result - for a 22 year old lens I'm impressed, v. impressed. It's one of the push pull to zoom and twist to focus lenses, so that took a bit of getting used to at first. Not to mention it's quite heavy. Also the screw driven autofocus is quite slow, as you might expect on a lens with no fewer than 4 focus limit settings, but certainly perfectly usable, and much better than I expected from a lens of this vintage. Anyway on to the pictures The following 3 images were taken with in aperture priority at f/9 simply to test the general image quality at the typical sweetspot apertures Finally this quick portrait of my brother was taken at f/2.8. This showed a softening of the image together with a bit of contrast loss - hence I chose to convert this to B/W. However viewing the original untouched RAW at 100% shows that plenty of detail still remains. All in all I think I scored a bit of a bargain here, and I'll certainly start using this lens on a regular basis.
