Item Description
For sale is a nice copy of Promaster Spectrum 7 70-210/f4-5.6 zoom lens.

It is a bayonet mount, manual focus lens with "A" setting, so you have an automatic aperture option like, for example, on Pentax-A lenses. I got this lens as a part of an ebay purchase and since I already have 4 other 70-210 (I really should sell some of them) I do not have use for this Promaster. However, out of curiosity I tested it on my K100D super and surprisingly it turned out to be a very capable lens. Image quality is comparable with Pentax-A 70-210 while it's half the size and weight. It is definitely one of the most compact and light 70-210 zooms I have seen. It is fun to operate. Macro is 1:4.7 Filter size -- 52mm

The lens is in excellent condition. Glass is clear, no fungus, haze or scratches. Focusing works smoothly but it does have some zoom creep. Aperture works fine. Exteriors are in great shape. Just one or two numbers on the focusing barrel faded but still readable.

I have no caps, might find some generic ones

Price is $40 shipped Conus

Thanks for looking

I found a generic rear cap and a front cap from Canon, which has a sign "Official 35mm camera 1984 Olympic Games". Looks kinda cool and fits just fine.

Another price drop -- now $40 shipped
