Red Umbrella

Red Umbrella -- 5D & Soligor 70-220mm f3.5 M42 Mount. Rainy & dim day. ISO 3200.

It's funny how things seems to come together sometimes. I now have three copies of the 70-220mm f3.5 lens. Two Soligor (PK & M42 mount) and one Bushnell (OM mount). According to some Chinese Forums I have read, these lenses were made by Tokina and naturally there is a Tokina branded version as well. I believe there are at least three design revisions of this lens. The early version has yellow letterings and the later ones are green. The last design version has the focal length changed to 70-222mm. Never saw one of these, though.
