XR Rikenon 50mm F2.8

This one is up for sale. The problem is that it does not exist, on the internet at least.

Anyone heard of it? Reviews?

Seb.

Adam,

the lens is a fifty, not 28mm.

BR,

Don't know anything about it, but the max aperture makes me think it's a macro.

I have actually seen it as a M42 mount on ebay. But no macro indications either.

I don't know why someone would get that lens, when an XR Rikenon 50/1.7 will run you under $30. Unless it is a macro, although I would expect it to say to the front. In general the XR Rikenons are nice lenses.

Here's one for sale in Finland.

Kameratori.fi — Suomen kattavin käytettyjen kameroiden nettikauppa

Apparently it was the kit lens for the Ricoh XR500

Ricoh Photographic product catalogue

The M42 version was a kit lens for the Singlex II and SLX 500.

With that speed and the size of the front element, it's probably a Tessar design. 50mm f2.8 kit lenses weren't uncommon.

The M42 50/2.8 is a completely different beast (base kit lens for the Singlex TLS and Singlex II)...at least the ones I have seen.

The XR 50/2.8 was the kit lens on the Ricoh XR 500 (Ricoh Photographic product catalogue). I would not pay more than $10 USD including shipping.

OK, thanks. I let it pass. The M50/1.7 is superior to this.
