Looking for info on Voigtlander 400mm f/5.0

I can get the following for between US$300 and US$450 (depending on exchange / conversion rate used).

- Zeiss Voitlander 400m f5.0 prime lens (with M42 mount)
- CPC Auto 28mm f2.8 Macro prime lens (with M42 mount)
- CPC 2x Tele-Converter (M42 to M42)

I found the CPC in the database (bayonet mount by the looks of it) and the current average price is US$15.

So it boils down to the 400mm and the TC to make the decision if it's worth it. I can not find info about this lens (in the lens database or on the web) with regards to quality. Does anybody have any idea?

I have found ??[??????] Carl Zeiss Telomar 400 mm which I think is the same lens and states a price of $11000, but I don't know which currency. I guess it's HK$ (so about US$1500) which would make the offer in the beginning of this post a nobrainer from a price perspective.

You're advice is appreciated.
