Topic: Hanimex 80-200 f 4.5 macro zoom in Canon FD mount.
I could not resist this lens for $5 Canadian. The focussing and zoom controls just feel like silk, they are so smooth. It looks like it has never been used. I am going to put it on my Canon 40D with an adapter (with no glass insert) which I bought a couple of months ago..... (Just in case I ever needed it......HaHa!!) I am going to use it for butterflies in the springtime as it will not focus to infinity with my inexpensive adapter. It has a green ring around the front of the lens which takes a 52mm filter. It has the usual purplish bluish multi coating and the serial number is 219525. I really like old manual lenses with the serial numbers upon them. It makes me feel the makers took pride in their endeavours. Speaking of makers.... I wonder who made this beauty for Hanimex.? They were an importer as we all know but whether it came from Tamron or Tokina or Kimunor is anybody's guess. It is quite cold where I live tonight and the usual snow is falling. One benefit is because it is so cold the snow is easy to just brush off the car with the broom.
Boy I do ramble on and on don't I. it is probably because I am a 1931 baby. HaHa!!
A belated Happy New Year to all. Jim.
