Default What is this lens?

Can anyone tell me anything about this lens? It is a wide angle and doesn't seem very strong. the front filter threads are 58mm and the mount threads are 49mm. It came in a black vinyl or leather draw string pouch with a red felt lining and has a corresponding telephoto lens. It seems to be pretty good quality optically.

G'day Richard

This seems to be a pair of "accessory lenses" for a video camera
It is quite probable that the Tele has a 1,5x and the Wide is a 0,75x rating

I have such a pair of lenses for mucking around purposes - and while mine have an optical quality of 4/10 compared with today's optics, they occasionally get a play

Here is a sample of 'my' tele unit vs the FZ35 zoomed to about 200mm


Hope this helps a bit ... show us some results from your lenses !!

Regards, Phil

I know what king of lenses they are (I have a cabinet full of tele and a few wide from my prosumer days) but thanks anyway. I was hoping for model number or specs (seems to be .7x), age, value or anything. I know getting any of that kind of information is an extreme long shot but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask. Maybe you could give an opinion on the pics?

The first 2 are a pentax ist-ds with ricoh 50mm 2.0 set at 2.0. The other 2 are the same with the wide converter, one with the camera at the same distance, and 1 with the camera moved closer to try and mach framing.

I presume there are no model or part numbers on the barrels or pouches anywhere.

No unfortunately not. The only markings are what you see in the pictures. I'm guessing unless someone see's my post that has owned one, I'll probably be out of luck.
