StarBlitz50-200 zoom

It's at least 30 years old. It is a K mount but really beat up. It was given to me by a friend that bought it while in collage 30 years ago so we know it was cheap then. I'm starting to doubt the need for expensive new lenses.

"I'm starting to doubt the need for expensive new lenses"

u are correct in your thinking.. if u are okay with manual focus (i am not) there is some very good old glass out there for next to no money.. its a bit hit and miss thow but still fun experimenting..

just avoid the "names" and u will get some pleasant surprises.. and the odd dud of course.. its fun thow..

ebay is your friend.. mostly.. he he
