Has anyone tried one of these 85mm Bower lenses?

Hello,

I've seen this on Amazon and eBay. Does anyone have first hand experience with this lens?

I haven't but apparently these lenses come under several different brands. There have been review on this site of the same lens branded as Samyang. I believe another brand they are sold as is Polar. The price for that one on Amazon is pretty high compared to what people have paid for other versions.

Thanks

Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of the other brands. I don't have high expectations. I'm having fun with my Helios 40-2, but would like AF sometimes. Kids are hard to keep up with!
