I have a f:4.5/300mm Makinon, in M42 mount. Big, heavy, and really cheap (got it for 10 euros !).

I didn't expect much, but was pleasantly surprised at how it performs stopped down to 5.6 or 8. Not much to say. Handheld is OK only in sunny weather, but then it works. It lacks contrast, as most legacy do, but it is not that bad. A really fun lens to go out and shoot on sunny summer days…
