The generic AF 70-210mm F2.8 - 4 ....when it does work ! ...works very well ........I found a 2001 Copy of " Amateur Pornographer " ...sorry Photographer ........the Cosina AF was advertised for sale at GBP £189 whilst not a top end third party price wasn't that ! cheap ........the much , much slower toy store plastic grade and higher end consumer Nikon AF lenses started around the £240 - £250 + mark ...apparently this Soligor is better than them ...apparently someone tested it properly against a far more expensive Sigma APO 70 - 210mm F2.8 constant from that era , and it came out well ........where it shows it's age is Chromatic Aberration and it's Autofocus being sometimes a bit slow and / or unreliable .....the colour balance is warmer , then you've the Nikon D1x with it's tendency to warm ... iffy white balance too .
