March 5, 2017

Good news everyone! After 2 months of detective work, we now have a prime suspect for the Alfo Supercolor 135/2.8. The lens does not indicate where it was made. The only information about it is that they are an old photographic shop in Germany that had their in-house brand of lenses.

After eliminating them one by one -- Sun Optic, Tokina, Tamron, Komura, Chinon, Makinon, Tefnon, Saymang... an Albinar ADG 135/2.8 (not the earlier macro version) shows up.

This lens is Made in Korea and is an exact photocopy of my Alfo Superclor 135/2.8. Now with the familiar markings, this points to one name: SAMYANG.

Very sharp at f/2.8, you can still see every detail of the fur from a distance.
