I'm sorry that I do not, but I wanted you to know that someone read your question. And of course, I would not know of its value. It appears that it does open up to f/2.8, so that would place it in the "fast" category for a lens, and something that typically carries more value/desirability in a lens. Have you been able to check out its optical and mechanical condition? It looks pretty well used to me, though it may be sturdy.

ask for a photo of the front of the lens. then you can check two important things:
1- The information about the lens: Brand, focal length range, maximum aperture at min and max focal length, multicoated or not
2- The condition of the front element is a good sign of how well treated the lens has been (came out like master yoda!)

Looks like a Promaster 28-70mm f2.8-4.2 MC Auto ZOOM MACRO (from a quick look at Wiki and then a Google image search). The eBay listing with the image has unfortunately gone and Google is of not much help otherwise.

@GlennG & carrrlangas : i saw the condition of the lens.. there was a bit of dust inside.. bud my lens tech. can handle it... its actually mechanically ok... it may look like my cat's toy (with all the scratches and stuff) but the apperture is good, the focusing ring is smooth

but there is one big problem... THE NAME PLATE OF THE FRONT OF THE LENS IS GONE screws are still intact

what will happen if the nameplate is missing?


thank you so much guys for helping me
