Posted By: jjdgti, 07-27-2015, 01:33 PM

Does anyone knows anything about this lens?

It is for sale in Ebay. I have no association with the seller.

Doesn’t look improvised tom too well made and the lettering on the side looks to be done with a die made especially for that job. It is as I said in a previous post a prototype or as dcshooter said it is an old lens that had a serial number sticker that has fallen off.

freaking sticker and falls off all the time due to crappy adhesive
That I didn't expect - maybe I'm just too used to classic lenses where the serial number never comes off.

I have seen something similar on another recently auctioned item (FA100/2.8 macro). This kit was complete with major ring flash and close up lenses/ adapters.
What you believe to be the closeup adapter is probably the front group(s) of this lens. Notice that the pictures do not show the front of the lens. I wonder why somebody would do that.
