Is my lens really made in 1975?

It doesn't matter I suppose. It's just like visiting a museum I guess, when I look through the lens and see only a tiny little scratch there's that same nice feeling of looking at something that is that old and has lasted in such good condition. I guess if it was just 10-15 years old instead of my believed 37, the stories of how old it is and what it's seen and captured though it are a bit more limited.

I took it out for another play this morning and am pretty impressed with the shots I got for an AUD $12.50 ebay purchase though. I can see this becoming a great hobby pretty quickly.

G'Day everyone,

I just purchased a lens from ebay, which is pretty nifty (
Pentax Makinon Zoom 80-200mm f3.5 Macro Manual Focus Lens 67mm MadeIn Japan 1975) Pentax Makinon Zoom 80-200mm f3.5 Macro Manual Focus Lens 67mm MadeIn Japan 1975 | eBay but it says on the items description that the lens was made in 1975... I can't find any year printed on the lens, but it wouldn't surprise me if it is that old considering how old the case is that it came in. Just wondering, how do I find out actually how old it really is?

Cheers,
Scotty O
