Keppler on Program Plus and Cosmicar



Keppler mentions Pentax made the Cosmicars - and in '84 he has seen a 28/2.8, 35-70 f/4 macro zoom, and a 70-200 f/4 macro zoom. The 28 was Taiwanese and the zooms Japanese made. Brand name: CPC Phase 2. CPC stands for Combined Products Corp, an importer of third party lenses.

I'll give ol' Herb a pass here; LCD displays were new then and we didn't know their foibles...

August!?

No, the Keppler was in the March 1984 issue of Modern Photography - look for it on your news stand

on the cover - a Kodak 8mm video camera that gives you 90 minute movies on your TV set... Pro Kodachrome produces even Better Slides... A new Pentax (that would be this Keppler article- guess the dude had some pull back then)... and on Modern Tests, Nikon FA: Sensation or Big PR Hype?

Perhaps that's the issue they reviewed the Pgm Plus and lenses...
