Soligor C/D 70-210 / f:4.5


Knows anyone how this lens performs wide open at 70 and mostly at 210 ? (if is sharp enough?!). I have the opportunity to buy one copy at ~36 euros (~52 USD) in KA Pentax mount (not simple K) and it seems to be in good condition (it was manufactured around 1985).
The f:4.5 stop is at half way between f:4 and f:5.6 or its closer to f:5.6 ?

Thank you very much.

I've got one

I've got one of these, and I like it a lot. The build quality is very good and the performace is very good too. At the price you quote, I don't think you can go wrong.

Thank you


Thank you. Could you, please, post some 100% crop pictures, if you can, taken at f:4.5 at 210mm and 70mm (wide open). We could make an oppinion on how it performs.
Thank you a lot. I'm intersesting on how sharp is the lens is wide open at all focal lenghts and how much is the CA (chromatic abberation).
Thank you again.
