The User's Rewivw: Sun Opt. 38-90mm 3.5 Macro Zoom Lens, with 5 turning rings

This lens catches my eyes with its five (5) turning rings on its barrel, probably the lens with the most rings I have ever seen. The focus and macro rings, but not the zoom ring, change the lens length when turned while only the macro ring when turned moves the rear element. The highest macro rate is 1:4 on this lens.


 There is a hood (67mm) on the lens as showed in the last image. However, I am not sure if the hood is original.

The User's Review: Pentax ZX-M 35mm Film Camera

The light-weight and auto-film-advance body with LCD displays (one on should and the other on the right side of viewfinder) needs a Pentax-A lens in order to use the A/Programed shutter function.

The User's Review: Vivitar V2000 35mm Film Camera

A simple and easy-to-use body, similar but better than Pentax K1000 in terms of specs. The body also has a Pentax K mount.

The front and back body surfaces are covered by a rubber layer, comfortable to hold.

On the left side of viewfinder, from top to bottom, there are +(red), o(green) and -(red) LCDs to indicate the light meter measurements.

V2000 might indicates the highest shutter speed, 1/2k sec.

V2000 might indicate the highest shutter speed, 1/2000 sec.

Good is the metal tripod screw hole, strong and durable to use. Bad is the thin plastic battery, easy to fall apart.
