I have come accross a old film lens with "Sands Hunter 1:3.5 F=135mm" on front.
Does anyone know anything about this lens? I suspect it is a third party one made to order for this firm.

At one time almost every supplier had its own range of lenses. They were all sourced from the same factories, some were good, some were dismal....

It might be fun to try out if it's free or very cheap (5?) and it might have usable qualities!
Best regards, John

Thanks John.
It is a freebie, so might try it out!

It came along with a Practica Super TL3, which has a Pentacon 1.8/50 lens. That appears to be in good condition ,though not sure about the quality!!!!!!!!!!!!

Regards

Ian

Actually, that 50mm lens should be very repectable on film, but on digital I don't know.
Best regards, John
