Has anyone had/heard anything about the "Presenta" lenses?
One guy locally is selling these three lenses and is asking ~70 USD for all ( near mint cond ). They are in Minolta MD mount and if I`d bought them I would be covered in all the focal lengths.
The lenses are:
1:3,3 f=200mm.
1:2,8 f=35mm.
1:2,8 f=28mm.

Not at all, but not interest either as cheap re-bagged Japanese lens I think, let's hope Luis now it. I see no point to take except if you wish to share with us a review Laughing to use I think you can buy better lens to try and sell , probably sell will impossible.

I think I heard "Presenta" was Pentacon/CZ rebrand for West German cheap photo mailorder. But then, I may remember wrong.

Complicaiting the issue is that CZ labeled some japanese mystery lenses (zooms! Imagine that!!) in the wild period 1990ff.

200/3.3 doesn't sound like (real) Pentacon though... and neither does MD mount.

I found this, once I had similar finish lens labelled to Prakticar 24mm or Pentacon, certainly not related to any of them was a cheap crap.

Dunno, the grip and the green/orange A/M seems japanese to me, (SUPER ALBINAR says mine and on the "back" small LENS MADE IN JAPAN),
so I'm sorry for that misleading idea.
Maybe it was the other way around - lenses imported *to* the GDR via one of the Genex etc. enterprises. Mhhm hmm. Gotta search a bit moar.

Neckermann (big West German mail-order business "generally-everything from clothes to voyages", 80s and 90s) house brand / relabel

so you'd better research who made MD 200/3.3 lenses at all, not that common for 200 as 3.5 and 4.0

I had a 3.3/200, it was crap. I forget the branding on it now but I think it was a Cosina.

Sounds pricey for a rebranded generic lens trio. Give it a miss.
