Topic: Bell & Howell 85~300mm macro lens M42
I was on fleabay when this lens & case came up for £4.99 delivered... I only wanted the case but the lens is in pristine condition & first test shots would imply that it is very sharp... I had a 300mm but it looked nothing like this one??
I can't find any information about it., has anyone owned one or come across this type of older lens???
I had my FD 300mm Tokina on the nex fitted to my wee' tripod so I took the shot @ 100mm ISO 3200 1/60sec.
Robin found this in the web.archive??
"From his list of 1600+ lenses, only 3 85-300mm f5. They are Osawa zoom 1979, Soligor zoom/macro c/d 1980, and Access 1984 zoom macro. As Soligor & Access are branded lenses, I think it must be a rebadged Osawa".
If it's an Asawa then you are right Brian they are fairly good lenses... when the weather improves I'll can get out & try it??
Hopefully one of you knows for sure?
