I picked one up at auction cheap and it turned out to be a good lens, quite sharp @ f8 even at 320. This is my second copy both were goon lenses. I sold the first with my Kr plus kit lens. It is as sharp as my 55-300 but not as wide so the 55-300 gets more use. You will like the lens Ira

G'day mate

Good find - and your experiences show that there were many really good 'film camera' lenses made. I have always had a virtual love affair with the Tamron 80-250 F3,8 I bought back in the late 60s .... a cracker of a lens and well used before I gave it to another user when I went to the K-mount system
