Inexpensive macro lens

Didn't notice this before, because it is in M42 mount. I thought people might be interested in it at $120 new:

Phoenix Telephoto 100mm f/3.5 Macro MF Lens P09031 B&H Photo

I believe this is made by Cosina:

It's a decent lens, certainly not as good as the Pentax, Tamron and Sigma versions but for the money, well worth considering.

I wonder where these came from. I had the Pheonix in a KA mount AF version. An M42 has to be some sort of old stock.
