Anyone knowing anything about these (m42 zoom lenses)?
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)
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:

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.
I have an M42 zoom 85-205mm f3.8 " uniphot". For sale.
