Hi,
A few photos of my Soligor. I'm not sure about the manufacture.
I'm waiting for the adapter to EOS, not sure if it's worth in this version.

Hi, I´m new here and just registered because of this:
I just bought this lense, maybe it helps to demistify the serial # 8
I think it should be a Cosina 24 2.8 Macro rebrand. I don`t find another lens that meets this specs.

I got mine for Pentax KA for 59 €.
One offer for Olympus was at 59 € (but ended without sell) and one for Fujica AX is in the bay for 62,30 (or offer).

Maybe a little too expensive, I will test it soon.

There is also a manual to buy for 3,00 € Wink

No I`m pretty sure it`s NOT the Cosinus 24 2,8 Macro, because my Soligor has 6 bades not 5 as the cosinus.
My weights 205 gr, the Cosinus only 170.
I don`t know now which is the probable producer :
Tokina only has max aperture 16
Ensinor no A

my guess is maybe Sigma, but did they produce for reseller?!

Looking at a few 28 2.8's on ebay right now for my a6000. Is there a general consensus on which make is optically better than others? Should I go Sun, Tokina....not sure that it makes a huge difference but if one is particularly better than the rest I'd like to get that make.

Thanks. Great resource!


IMO, both Sun Optical and Tokina made 28mm f2.8 lenses are excellent. I have both and enjoy their distinctive output.

Both are 7 elements in 7 groups, so both have great sharpness and depth in close and far field shots.
The older Tokina is larger, 8 bladed, 58mm filter size, single-coated. (Cooler and more neutral colors.)
The C/D Sun is shorter and lighter, 6-bladed, 49mm filter, Soligor MC coated. (Decidedly warmer colors.)

Another Soligor challenge.
This one has a 6XXXXX serial number.
If Komine, it looks unlike other Komines.
Resembles maybe Tamron or Noritar.
Also what is the mount ?
Puzzled

Mount is Miranda Auto.
Maker may be Nittoh/Sankor.
Just a guess.

Their is a disclamer at the bottom of my chart.
The 6 digit Soligors are an unkown code, so the chart won't work for them.

Am I right in thinking that's a 300mm f5.6? But in any case it looks almost identical to the Tamron adaptamatic 300mm f5.6.

PS come on guys stop cluttering up these threads with duplicate and triplicate pics because you can't be bothered to hit the delete button a few times.

It is a 250mm f4.5 Soligor.
Not mine, but from a maker that looked different to those already mentioned so worth listing.

Please check out this thread.

http://forum.mflenses.com/soligor-180mm-f-3-5-serial-starting-with-8-t74494.html

The reason I changed 9 code to Kobori, is the thread below. I also checked examples off of ebay and I agree.

Greetings,

I just purchased couple of Soligor lenses - a zoom 70-210mm f3.5 C/D and this little guy - 28mm f2.5. Looks like its Sun made (sad panda) in the late 70s ('78.) if I read the S/N correct.

Regards!

P.S. Its f2.5 but I hope its is of some intereset to you, since its generally 28mm f2.8 thread Smile

After a bit of researching it looks like its just rebranded Sun 28mm f2.5

Thank you OldHand Smile

Komine=Nittoh=Sankor?

Sorry, I confused myself.
Komine - Nitto/Nittoh Kogaku, which I think is probably correct.
Sankor - Nissin Optical I think, based on the quite common anamorphic lenses from Nissin that use the Sankor trademark also.

I'd say SUN due two holes on front glass ring:
