The Soligor C/D 28-200mm f/3.5-5.3 is similar to the Soligor C/D 35-200mm f/3.8-5.5. It is also a Pull Zoom and therefore the length is changing. The Maximum length is about 165mm. The Image Quality is okay, but nothing special. If you step down to f8, you'll get the best performance this lens is capable of. I own the M42 mount, but I also saw Nikon AI, Canon FD and Minolta MD. Maybe there are more.
There is an Macro Option, where xou can make Macros in the Scale of 1:5.5 if you are on 200mm. Now, the closest focus distance becomes 1.35m instead of 2.5m.
The Lens also has a Multi Coating.
