Came across an older gentlemen that had a local ad on CL. A Chinon CE-4 body, an Ultranar 28/2.8, an Auto Chinon 50/1.9 and a Soligor 70-222/3.5 macro. Yes, 70-222. Been wanting a 50 prime, so yay. This Soligor though, man, this thing is beefy and weighs in at around 2.5lbs. The MFD on the macro is insaaaane! MFD is in the neighborhood of 1 inch.
Glass is spotless, no oil on blades, apertures are smooth and snappy. Hoya UV on the 50, Popular 1A on the 70-222. I have no use for the Ultranar. Something tells me my Yashica DX 28/2.8 is better. Gonna start a separate thread on the ultranar since I can't find ANY info on the net about it. Maybe someone here knows. What little info I could find on the Soligor 70-222 is very positive. Can't wait for the adapters to come in so I can play with these! Will try and get some pics up later.
Oh yeah, got it all for $30.
