I love the Kiron 80-200mm/f4.5 Macro!

Not bad for a lens that is full manual and around 48-years old! Taken with a Pentax K10D. I LOVE the bokeh on this photo! I call it "The Passenger" and it was taken hand held, absolutely UN-EDITED except for resizing for the Web.

What brand did you purchase? I recently bought a 70-200mm CPC Phase2 f4 Macro and it arrived a few days ago. It's a fun lens to mess with and has a nice look in some instances.Nice for flowers and such.
A recent shot from the yard.

Haha I have the exact same one! Awesome lens. Its a rebranded SMC-A70-210/4. Very sharp for a zoom and the bokeh is very nice. the build it lens hood is also great.

I got it on ekkbay for 30 dollars a week ago. The pictures of it looked so nice and new looking and the info on it caught my interest so I jumped. Glad I did now as it is a nice lens and even feels good if you know what I mean.
Right after that I had a chance for a series 1 vivitar 105 macro 2.5 new/old stock and jumped on it also . It is supposed to be here on monday.
My wife is very understanding thank goodness:0)

I had the 80-200 the first year they were out, it got stolen. I just got another this year on ebay and it proves to be one of the best manual lens I have. Love the contrast and color.
