#VintageLensTest - Five frames with a Lumax Gold Star 200mm F4, images post-processed in monochrome.

The lens was a surprise find, I have no prior ideas or knowledge about its presence or make. It came through the mail out of a job-lot sale. Big and bulky, the lens it seems, is made by Sankor, is a pre-set with an M42 mount, weighs in at a hefty 670 grams, and has many blades which I have yet to count.

When it came, Lumax Gold Star 200mm F4 was less than perfect though, it has a few tufts of fungal sprawls within its inner elements but surprisingly, it is virtually dust-free. An interesting bonus to me was the built-in tripod mount on a rotating ring, which makes it convenient for me to mount on the E-P5 via an M42 mount adapter.
