This is a duplicate of my post in the "best bargains" thread. Only reason why I'm doing it is because this is a lens I just bought. Original post follows:

===============================

I've been meaning to get a copy of he Canon FD 80-200mm f/4 two-ring zoom for a while now. Back in the day, this lens was considered to be a moderately priced pro-quality zoom. As such it sold for more than twice as much as the nFD 70-210 push-pull zoom, which is really a good lens. But supposedly the 80-200/4 is better.

Now, what's really great about the old 80-200 two ring zooms is they're going for dirt cheap on eBay right now (US eBay that is). I found one with a Buy It Now of $25, and FREE shipping. Sold! What[s more, the photos looked as if it were a pretty clean lens. The seller remarked that there were some very light marks on the front element, which I guess scared off most people. But I knew better, so I bought it.

The lens arrived today. Turns out, the "marks" the seller was referring to was just a bit of dirt and smudges on the front element. It cleaned up to reveal a perfect piece of glass. And the overall condition of the lens is a solid Exc+. Wow, what a deal!





I took it for a test drive just a short while ago. I will be posting results in a thread I'll start over in the manual focus lenses sub-forum.

Congratulations, Sergtum!
Is the Jupiter 9 a rangefinder lens?

There is something quite appealing about the unusual focal lengths Pentax served up in the M-Series lenses.

Angenieux-Kodak Anastigmat 3.5/100mm (plus macro ring)

Olympus E.Zuiko Auto-T f2.8 100mm very cheap because it had 'an area of coating damage' which turned out to be nothing more than a grease spot that just wiped off. Smile

Just awaiting for Father Christmas (or the postman) to deliver my Tamron AD2 SP 72B 90mm f2.8 1:1 macro

This is the harder to source version of the 90mm macro AD2 lenses.

It has the added benefit of 1:1 macro without any extension tube.

Really looking forward to testing it out

Congrats, not a common lens at all, and I collect Hexanons and have never managed to find one at the right price. I do have the early F mount version, a great lens, very sharp and well corrected, but still with quite a bit of character.

Thanks Ian. Local Australian ebay auction. Sold for about 20% less than recent average Euro auctions from what I can see here. Mint, case with original hood. I have never seen one being on the local Australian ebay so yeah know how rare these beauties are Very Happy

Managed to get this of my niece wide open, 12mp m43 sensor. Full frame camera next I think to do this lens and the others justice Smile

That's one i'm still missing Wink ... but a few weeks ago i was happy enough to get a some Konica stuff (2.5/135mm, two 3.5/28mm, a 1.7/50mm with an T4 and a 1.8/85mm) for CHF 100.--. Not a bad price since everything looks like new.

The 85mm is a nice lens, optically on par with other similar lenses of that time. But they all are nearly indistiguishable anyway (Nikkor Ai 1.8/85mm, Canon FD and new FD 1.8/85mm, Minolta MC-II and MD-I 1.7/85mm, Konica AR 1.8/85mm). The only one being sharper is the Minolta MD 2/85mm ...

Stephan

and ah yes - a Full Frame body make really sense for using these lenses !! A cheap used A7 is sufficient Wink
