I can't blame the lens though - I can't focus with my Pentax primes
either... that is -- I think it is in focus but when I put the image in
photoshop it is clear that it isn't...
But I did figure it wasn't a very good lens... if I sell them I think
I'll just bundle with the camera and say untestedand get what I can.

manually very well (to say the least!) not sure itis helpful.
anyone have experiece with them?
If you can't focus a Star-D lens it may not be your fault. We sold
something similar back in the mid 80s at Astral Photo under our house
brand "Image". They were made in South Korea when that country was
IIRC, the 135/28 kit was sold for something like C$80.00, or less if
you bought it as part of a kit with an SLR.
They were contemporaneous with the Hyundai Pony and were about as good
a lens as the Pony was a car.
To be fair, they didn't rust out as fast as the Pony.
They were not a particularly good lens.
