  1. Never heard of gemini is that a quality lens brand? Its got clear scratch free lenses but is a little dinged up
     
  2. John, Gemini is a brand name for an importer. It's a cheap zoom that was distributed during the heyday of the Canon A series and Minolta X series cameras, the mid 80s. Lenses like this were often advertised for about $50 new. J.C. Penney, Sears, Montgomery Ward, K-Mart and many others sold them. They often bore names like Albinar, Zykkor, CPC, Toyo and of course Gemini. It is not a quality lens brand. Take pictures with it. If you like the shots, keep it. If not, you can probably find a buyer for $20. I have two Toyos, one in K mount, the other Minolta. Both were given to me. They have been my introduction to zoom lens dis-assmebly and repair.
