Another lens purchase

Okay so I have purchased another M42 lens for a price of £12.99 via eBay, its a Photax 200mm F/4.5, cant seem to find much info on it so asking here if anyone owns this lens or can shed some light on its performance etc.

As soon as the lens gets to you, we hope you shed some light on this lens (and light on some sensor) to tell us about it's performance.

A search of this site came up with 28 threads where photax is discussed.

Hope your Photax is a good one! That's a nice price for a 200mm. I had a Kmart 'Focal' 200mm around 1974, had a fine time with it.

Sample variation, poor testing and the like guarantee me no cure for my LBA. I simply relax and let the current carry me along.

If anything, one gets to play with a lens he doesn't know.
£12.99 is not a bad price for knowledge
