Does anybody knows the Soligor macro zoom 85-205mm f:3.8 ?
First time I see one.
It is in Nikon Ai-s mount.

Seems to be the Soligor version of the common Kino/Kiron 85-205/3.8

There are many more in the Vivitar brand than Soligor.

and the Vivitar :

30 + delivery costs
seems interesting.

Thank you very much to both of you.

I have a couple of those under Vivitar and Sears.

The Soligor are in general very good but I found the Soligor C/D series excellent. I'm sure you know that too Smile

I had several CD lenses, zoom was surprisingly very good. 28mm f2.0 and 200mm f2.8 just okay, I didn't like their color rendering.

had it in Nikon mount , it was much better than the price indicated, but for 30.- you nearly get a Nikon 80 - 200 Ai 4.5

I have one branded Optomax in M42 mount. Not a bad lens for what it is.
