    a Good Camera Club Mate and Fellow FLICKR member gave me these great lenses ! Here are an Auto- MAKINON MC zoom 35-70mm f3.5 - 4.5 and a wonderful TAMRON BBAR Multi-Coated Zoom with 'Macro' 85-210mm f4.5
    Initial tests show MAKINON slightly Soft at full aperture and TAMRON useable at full aperture and really sharp for 'Macro' setting.

    60D, 10D, 50D 1dmark3, T70, AV1, lenses ranging from 28mm to 600 mm, canonet Junior, Canonet QL 25, Mamiya C3 and 3 lens sets, Pentax MG and various lenses
    I also have a like for the FD and the FL and have a few in my collection.
    I prefer the primes, 28, 35. 50 and a 55 F1.2.
    The 55 is a big chunk of glass, my copy is a little knocked around but I have found no issues with the images.
