I was at the local second hand shop looking at the camera goods when I saw something that caught my eye. It was a 2.8/28 mm Makinon lens. I already had a 2.8/28 mm Focal, but quite frankly, I found it to be lousy, especially soft in the corners. I trotted back out to the car, picked up my rebranded Chinon, threw the lens on, and fired off a shot out the door of the place. I gave them the lens back, and I returned the next day to purchase this lens for the king's ransom of $15.00. I took it down to the local park for a test run. This one doesn't drop off in the corners. They both have a bit of distortion, but what the hell?
