yashinon dx 200mm f4

I just purchased a brand new auto yashinon dx 200 f4 from ebay and wondering if any of you used it before. I've searched everywhere, but there are a little information on this lens. Anyone?

Second, would there be any problem with the lens that's not been used for over 30 years (assuming they stopped making dx lenses in the 70's) ?

I believe this is a screwmount lens, so you'll need the adapter for that.

The focusing ring on the lens might be a bit stiff due to the age, but after a little bit of use, it should go back to normal. Let us know when you get it!

Anybody else have experience with this lens? I will definitely post some pictures when I receive the lens.

I don't have this lens, but I have a couple of other DX's - they are good lenses. And they have the A/M switch so using the adapter will be a snap.
