Newbie here. Bought this secondhand for $10 NZ, which is nothing. Think it is about 10 years old. Cosina 28-80mm. Can't seem to find any info on this.

Since I'm a girl, I'll say that I like the colors and that it's pretty!

Other than that, I'm no help!

Google reveals a little information:

And of course one review in our own database:

But I guess you did already find those

Actually, I looked for a review here, but couldn't find one, so thanks for that. Anyway, looks like $10 was about right. Will have a few shots with it and see how it goes

Most of these 28-80s are good enough to get by. They can be more useful if they have a short minimum focus distance, a filter size that works with your other lenses, or something else that works for you. The DA 18-55 holds up pretty well against them, but of course stops at 55mm.

I can't call a lens pretty but I regret selling some lenses just because they looked cool on the camera.
