My eye ... it can't even focus to infinity on its own. Much improved with an extra lens. And no, not planning to sell it anytime soon.

A 35mm Simco purchased in the late 1950's for my Exakta VX IIa.
I ruined one roll of film with it and never used it again.

It ranked somewhere well below the cracked bottom of a coke bottle.

I wouldn't sell it. There is no one I disliked that much.

I have 2...

1) Haminex 135-f2.8... Bought for 7 on ebay - Too much hassle to get rid - Its a real dogsh*t lens... Lives in a cupboard rather than the shelf

2) Pentax-M 40mm 2.8 pancake - I could sell for more than I paid - Not a great lens, not particularly bad, just not great - I keep cos it 'looks' really good attached to older film bodies and is a bit of a rarity...

The worst ones are in a pile heading for the thrift store soon, so not sure they still count as 'my' lenses. Of the ones that will stay, I suppose the Rikenon 50/2 qualifies. It's a good lens optically but the aperture has stuck a couple of times, so using it past f/4 risks overexposure - plus it has the Sigma 50 macro to compete against. And given its value is pretty low I expect I will keep it, for rare times when f/2 is worth having.
