Super Paragon PMC II 24mm f2.8

I used this lens for close focus, but i don't have any info on it. To me it looked as a decent lens. Anybody had some experience with a similar one?

I have an Auto Super Paragon PMC 24/2.8 (not II) in N/AI mount, modded for PK press-fit. Cost: under US$10. I love it. Before I got a working Vivitar-Kiron MC WA 24/2 (US$135), the Paragon was my main 24mm lens. Crisp, contrasty, little distortion. I dug up somewhere that it was made by Cimko. Just don't tell anyone you're using it. Cover up the name with black tape. It gets no respect.

Thx for the info. Ok, i'm not using it....somebody has broken into my account and posted this... Well i don't care what other think, i'll use a mount with lenses glued into a plastic bottle if provides good results! Got some links about Cimko, it seems was sold under this name in the UK.

Ana that's my opening to suggest some fun: Scavenge lenses from magnifiers, polaroids, box cams, eyeglasses etc. Glue them into body caps. Mount on bellows. WAIL!! And for more fun, stencil onto those body caps names like Leitz, Zeiss, Canon, etc. If anyone asks, they're exotic experimental items. Same as the Paragon.
