I'm a cheap b********!:lol: I buy cheap lenses at charity shops and camera fairs, but I always try to buy lenses in good cosmetic condition. I think I paid about 5 ( UK Pound ) for the Soligor CD 28 / 2 as it was was really dirty. But it cleaned up and is unmarked. I will strip a lens to clean fungus and relube, I get some nice stuff by picking through the crap other people pass by. :D

I like my old Soligors, and 5 out of the 13 I have are CD Range lenses; some fixed and a couple of zooms. The CD lenses are all very good, and most of the other Soligors are decent lenses - except for one 35mm which I believe to be misaligned.
The CD's are nicely made and optically very good. The CD 70-210 / 3.5 is as good as both of my Vivitar Series 1 70-210's ( both Komine ) but it is a bigger and heavier lens. My CD 28 / 2 is my 'go to' lens for my Minolta's, I prefer it to the Rokkor 28 / 3.5 and not just for the extra speed, I rarely shoot wide open.
They were sold in competition to Vivitar's Series I lenses, if you can find the prices they sold for back in the day they were cheaper than the Vivitar Series 1 lenses, but they still weren't cheap.
