Apparently I'm not yet a fully fledged subscriber, but here I am (thankfully) at last! I have been "lurking for some time, now I'll be able to participate -at last. I have been itching to ask for some information from other subscribers and to share my interest in "veteran" 35mm cameras. First up: has anyone any information on an "Astron MC 80-250mm 'Macro'" zoom lens. I found this lens in a "well used" but functional condition at a local charity shop in Pentax K-mount for Aus$5-00. I have already put a roll of Fuji Superia ISO 400 past it and have been more than satisfied with the result, especially for $5-00, but would appreciate any info. As time permits, I intend to participate more. So long for now.
