Canon Zoom Lens 70-210mm 1:4


First shots with a long lost old friend! A zoom lens I gave my daughter who knows how long ago turned up this past week in a box. The lens was made thirty years ago, having a Canon date code of Nov, 1987. Been so long since I'd seen or used this lens that I had to look it up online for reference. Turns out its claimed to be the first autofocus telephoto zoom Canon ever made. So there's even a little significant history to this lens besides just re-finding it. And its a constant f4 aperture which makes it even rarer considering today a constant aperture f4 in these focal lengths would cost a pretty penny.
