After reading about Ira's LBA, I remembered that during a recent purchase a Milda 35mm f2.8 Screwmount lens was included. I haven't really had a chance to test it out as of yet. Does anyone have any experience with this lens?



Here's the picture. Someone was right in guessing it was a Miida. Any idea if its any good. I really have to find some time to try it out.

Thanks

Fred

Could is possibly be Miida? Some early roof-prism binoculars were sold under that name - Miida Night Owl 8X56 (I had the same glass under a different name and it was pretty good optically, but not well sealed and eventually fogged up), and I had seen other optical products advertised as well. I don't know if it was a manufacturer or just an import label.

Guys, this is hilarious...

Seriously, almost any 35mm focal length lens should be of reasonable quality since, like the 50mm and the 135mm, they were the standards of their time. Everyone in the old screw mount days had those three lenses, a 28mm was considered an extreme wide angle by most amateurs and a 200mm was something to drool over. I think this lens is definitely worth trying out.
