I got into zooms later in the mid 80's and was ok sticking with brand names
but avoiding third party glass.

I forgot I was given out of pity a 135 3.5 Nikkor at day one for me in the
late 70's. It didn't seem to have much of a coating maybe it wore off in the
I could sell it for 33 bucks.
Or use it to great effect when I get a full frame body.

Mine was an earlier version than this.
