Chinon 35-80mm Auto MC

Dear All,

anybody who has experience with this lens?
are Chinon lenses good?
Need to know how's the IQ compared to 18-55mm kit lens? (find the kit too short)
is this lens Macro?

Appreciate any ideas...

Thanks in advance

Here's no info on this particular lens, but it seems that Chinon lenses are decent: chinon Lenses - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database
