Can you tell me more about this lens please. I am new and don't have knowledge about lenses, I have sony alpha a7 II with kit lens but recently I bought Porst uni-zoom 1:3,5/35-105mm macro mc auto m 72. I think that I have pk pentax mount and I want to put on my sony. If it's possible can you recommend me good adapter.


As FrancoD already said, a rebranded RMC Tokina 35-105/3.5 Close Focusing zoom, sold by the German company Photo Porst during the late 70s/early 80s, when it was more about that still relatively new zoom feature and not primarily about optical quality. But stopped down a bit, this lens seems to be o.k. Good build quality. Ponder & Best sold it as Vivitar.

In the 50s or 60s Photo Porst was the world's biggest retailer; their 1980 catalogue shows the P/K bayonet version of this standard zoom lens for DM 569 (in today's Euros that would be € 285).

The entire 1980 Porst catalogue:
