The Soligor lens shown in your pic is around 30+ yrs old. The 2nd-value is probably $30-$40, even tho it no doubt has had little use.

To my knowledge, there are no equivalents brand new and in the shops - the optics world has moved on with huge zooms for cameras these days, rather than 'novelty' items as this was in its day

If your seller is asking under $50, then maybe you can give this a go ... very carefully ... but over $50, the seller's in the wrong ball park
