Bought on a whim with a last minute bid without knowing anything about Komura or the lens but my Pentax is a good one so I thought I would compare.
The listing was not very informative but what I could see the body of the lens looked good (apart from coarse dust) even if I could not see the state of the optics.
On arrival it came in a hard lens case that the foam at the top and bottom had rotted away and was all over the lens so my heart sank a bit but after a vacuum it came up nice.
A quite hefty lens, it s a pleasure to use, all rings well damped but not stiff, a near 360 degree focus ring, no zoom creep and no problem selecting an aperture (half stops available between F5.6 and F32).
Having read some of the information available I am assuming this lens was made in the 70's, the Unidapter mount means I can look at some of the other lenses in the Komura range which I might do as their primes seem to be well rated.
Images seem to have good colour (no indication that it has coated optics) and is quite sharp. There is an integral hood which is a good fit and I believe a 58mm filter thread. The cap fits over the lens (or filters) and inside the hood.
I was lucky with this lens, it looks almost mint and handles like it too.
Recommended!
