Today I bought a Unitax 70-230mm f/4 Macro MC in Olympus OM mount for a mere €10. I don't have any information on it, except the specs written on the lens itself. It looks like a typical Japanese rebrand and looks a lot like the Vivitar 70-210 Series 1 v.2 as shown here, second from the left
Which makes me wonder if this Unitax is a Tokina made lens? The only similar lens I found online is the Deitz 70-230mm f/4 but that doesn't ring a bell to me either.
Some pictures of the lens itself:
The lens is f/4 over the entire focal length an has 6 aperture blades. Pull to zoom. Macro gear goes to 1:3. Weight without caps is approx. 810gr., height is 17cm.
I haven't had the chance to actually use it because the OM-EFM adapter has yet to arrive. But for this price I just wanted to give the lens a try.
I'm very interested in any information you can come up with!
