I figure at that price I can't go wrong but any opinions would be welcome. I would be using the 210 for portraiture and it appears that the lens is a copy of the Commercial Ektar.

Yes I saw the Congo go for a knock-down price (I already have a 210). I understand the Congo is a reasonably good lens and definitely a bargain.

I also have a 150 Sironar. Excellent lens, equal to the Schneider, Fuji and Nikon equivalents. Anyone who can tell the difference either has incredibly sophisticated equipment – or a lively imagination!



Good luck
