K mount "Dejur 35mm f2.8"???

Anyone ever heard of it?

If so, what should I expect from this prime? Couldn't find any info on this lens at all.

Regards,
D

If it's really cheap, you can buy it and give it a try. Otherwise, if it's not cheap and can't find any info about it, it's not worth the risk. There are many primes out there that make you realize how good your kit lens is. update: oh, but you should know it! I just took a peek at your equipment)

Thanks, Stefan!

This lens is cheap, cheap enough to try indeed. Just want to get a feel for this focal length, with no temptation to zoom in or out... It's at KEH for sale, may even qualify for return if I don't like it...

Regards,
D

Just gargle for DeJur lens and see what pops up, eh? Keep in mind that different users will report different experiences, and that various lenses bearing some brand name may or may not have come from the same source. Even bad cheap lenses can be fun. (Or so I keep trying to convince myself.) If nothing else, you can experiment by progressively scratching and cracking the objective to see what's necessary to degrade IQ. Heh heh.

The Dejur name has been used on a number of products including enlargers and motion picture equipment dating back 60 or so years. A lens as recent as what you describe is probably not a product of the original company and is likely a label slapped on a generic 28mm lens. It may be good and it may not.

Thanks for replies, appreciate it!

From what I can find (barely anything) - this lens is from early 80's, but that's about all. So for $7 more, just opted for Tokina II 28mm f2.8 PKA, just to try this focal length, will see.

I think you are going to like the Tokina. Post your pictures when you get it.
