What's the big deal? ;)

Héllo!

I know a lot of you guys have a lot of old lenses. And everything abouyt pentax I know more or less, but the problem is when one person offer me to buy some non-pentax lenses like sonigor ect ect.

I turn to you for ask about some quick things.

One guy offered me this for 50$. He also deliver it to where i live.

Sigma 70-210 f4,5

Soligor 400mm 6,3f

Lightmeter (separat) (no idea what brand)

(it's m-42 lenses so I do need an adapter, witch not cost much)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My question is: Do anyone of you have any experiece of this lenses?

Is it a good deal or should I try buy just a few of them and not all?

Thank you for the help

Emil,

I own the Super Multicoated Tak 35 3.5 - if that's what that lens is, you
should at least try to get that one alone if you don't want the others.
Very sharp lens with nice contrast:

If it is the T4 universal mount Soligor 400mm f/6.3 with a T4 to M42 adaptor on it then here are some sample images: Soligor 400mm Lens - a set on Flickr

It is also possible that Soligor sold other 400mm lenses. In addition to the universal mount mine has a built in tripod collar and the aperture control is a silver ring at the rear (as opposed to a preset type of aperture).

It looks very nice. The guy told me that it have the M42 screw mount.
Nothing about T4. What is T4?

Soligor and Vivitar both sold T4 lenses. The back part of the lens is removable so that you can change the mount and use the same lens on different brands of cameras. At this point the lenses are old enough that many owners don't realize that the lens mount is removable. I wouldn't worry about it too much, I just wanted to point out which Soligor 400mm I was posting samples from as I don't know if Soligor made more than one type of 400mm lens.

More T4 information: T4 For Two

Not my picture, but this is what my lens looks like: Soligor (Tokina) 400/6.3 T4 mount on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
