Bump for a good lens.

I had one of these minus the multiplier until not too long ago, one of my first manual lenses. It was very sharp even at f3.8.

How would you rate this one against the Series 1?

Free bump for a nice looking lens.

I haven't used any of the S1 70-210mm lenses, but I've been very pleased with both my copies of this Kiron-made 75-205 ... another bump ...

EsBee, duncsuss: Thanks!

Jimfear: I haven't used this lens much but I think they are not far from each other, build quality is the same, sharpness wide open is almost the same, contrast is bit lower but not bad.

Actually I think I'm going to do some comparison shots and maybe I'll post them here.

I did some test shots and they can be seen here.

They're nothing fancy but you can check the full size images. IMHO regarding sharpness this lens comes pretty close to the Series1 2.8-4/70-210mm. I also included two shots with the 2X
