        This is not even the point. I don't have exact statistics for Japan, but it seems like the average salary there in 1990 was 300 yen, so you could buy three lenses with it. Another thing is what could be bought from photographic equipment for 000 rubles in the USSR then. If we take it at the official rate, it seems like Granite 357-80, which is manual, cost more than this autofocus elka.

        Amazing calculations - in 1986 my father worked as an engineer, and his monthly salary was 319 rubles. I remember this well, because he always made fun of - the ruble did not reach 320 ...

    It remains to add that this is the cheapest lens with fluorite glass inside, which you can generally buy and it costs about $ 280 in excellent condition.

    Good lens.
    So old, noisy, weird, but light and very picturesque.

    Once I had a penny in a bundle, then I sold it, then I suddenly found it again - for repair, but for free.
    And now for flowers I sometimes use the same nickle, for a walk in the sun - that's it.

    I bought a Canon 7D especially for him, I thought that autofocus would be really very slow, and all that, but in fact it turned out that everything is very normal. Except for those cases when af ​​begins to refocus, it works fast enough for ordinary types of shooting, there are very few misses, sharpness even at open apertures is excellent, in conjunction with this camera, a very light and small set with a good tele-range is obtained. I thought that at 300mm the shutter speed should be at least 1/500, but in fact it turned out that 1/320 is quite sufficient. The Canon 7D camera itself is not very large and its grip is also not very large, even for medium hands, but it is not very annoying when shooting.
