Soligor C/D 80-200mm f3.5 Sample
I am not a big fan of zoom lenses, but I think they are sometimes indispensable in situations where mobility is limited or space is restricted. Also, many find it easier to compose with zoom than a prime lens. Early zooms were not very good. There were too many compromises. The use of computers in lens design resulted in markedly improved optical performance of zoom lenses. Soligor lenses bearing the C/D (computer designed) mark were considered their premium line of lenses and they usually have better performance compared to their non C/D lenses. This particular Soligor C/D 80-200mm f3.5 is quite a good performer as old zoom lenses go. Certainly quite decent wide open, at least at 80mm.
