Hi all
Searching around flea bay this evening and i stumbled across the above mentioned lens!
Took a gamble and got it for £19, couldnt find any reviews for this lens on net though. Has anyone any experience with this lens good bad?

Thank all......

Hmm... really doesn't seem to be much about it out there. I did find this thread on dyxum. Looks really ancient.

If it is the same lens that is shown at Dyxum then I have seen and handled it at a used camera store. It feels really solid, but heavy, and there was no barrel creep. I was going to buy it, but it didnt work on my A300, got a error when i put it on.

Hope that helps

That could be bad then! I'm using it on A300 too. Nevermind didn't break the bank.

You could always take it apart, see what the insides of a lens look like! :)

Just got the lens in post today, it was the same lens as in the link above. But it works perfectly with af too! will post some test shots soon.
Lens came in excellent condition very sturdy built (heavy) and af is a tad noisy but it works .

Happy days.......
