Anyone knows this lens? I've been offered one to buy but have not idea what it is.. is it rare? I know it's 2.8-3.5/25-45... any idea of value or rarity?

Thanks,

Vlad.

A bit wrong written I guess?
VarioZenitar 25-45mm/F:2,8-3,5 it shoud be.
Usually K-mount.
Good wideangle zoom, not easy to find but certainly no rarity either.
What I have seen it sells for 100-150 USD

Zoom, do you know what was the production numbers on this one? Someone claims 100 units, but I'm calling their bluff...

I have seen a dozen at least, so I would say 1.000 is too little!

This is a very easy to find lens Interesting that it does not accept any of commercial filters only those which come with them.
Await My new post describing all KMZ lenses published in all known literature lenses for amateur cameras, spy cameras, movie cameras, aerial cameras and special cameras. With diagrams! -Just after that let us call Zoom and give him a headache to complement the unknown and hidden lenses!

Thanks Juhani, I would figure that would be the case since the link Zoom posted says the lens was in serial production. In Soviet/Russian terms that usually means thousands of units...

...and Luiz, waiting anxiously for your new information! Thank you!
