Topic: Sun Tele-Auto 200 mm f-2,8 MC
Here's another one I got a long time ago (1 year last summer), and almost never used, because it gave so bad results .
Got it in OM mount, and adapted to Pentax K, pretty straightforward mount swap. Had a bit of fungus in the rear element IIRC, but cleaned OK, no trouble. Also had stiff blades (oil), cleaned OK, even witout full disassembly.
All was going well, until I tryed it.
AWFULL!!! Even stopped down to 5,6, nothing I got out of it even compared to other lenses I had . So, it ended back in a shelve and I sort of forgot about it...
A couple of weeks ago, e decided it could not be that bad, no one would ever pay extra to get a fast tele that rendered like a regular one with vaseline smeared all over it (believe me, it was THAT bad ).
So, started to dismantle it. Should have done that before .
Just below the front element, there's the second element, held by a retaining ring. Wich was LOOSE!!! DAH!!! .
After fixing that, tinkered a little more with it and got auto aperture, with limitations. It is OK, but works only up to about f-8 . If I get some time I'll post a how-to and explain why it won't go further.
Anyway, here's what this post is about, sample pics.
And with strong OOF highlights:
