Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone has actually used this lens? How good will it work with digital bodies? How much would it be worth today?

Hi! Nice to see you here! Welcome aboard!

I have Novoflex 40cm 5.6 Novoflexar lens, pistole grip , follow focus system and the lens itself are excellent.

I have Tamron SP 60-300mm lens too, also an excellent zoom lens, but I like primes better.

I suppose this lens price will be above on a normal Tamron SP 60-300 lens price take if you need fast focusing (almost fast as auto focus)
