    Anyone knowing anything about these (m42 zoom lenses)?

    Hello.

    I have been looking for a zoom lens for my Praktica for a while and know there are some of them on Tradera (swedish auction site). So I was wondering if anyone know anything about these lenses (i.e if they are any good or not)
    Tamron 95-205/6,3
    Tokina RMC 35-105/3,5
    Tamron SP 35-80/2,8-3,8

    The Tamron SP 35-80/2,8-3,8 is one of the best zooms I have ever heard of. If the price is reasonable, run for it. Here is a page about this lens:

    I'd stay away from the others. The Tamron 95-205/6,3 is a very old T-mount lens produced from 1961 to 1969. It is bulky, not very sharp and not fast at all. The Tokina 35-105/3.5-4.3 is one of those "one touch" consumer grade zooms from the 80s (introduced in 1980). Quite unattractive lens IMHO and image quality is so-so only.

    Cheers!
