    a Good Camera Club Mate and Fellow FLICKR member gave me these great lenses ! Here are an Auto- MAKINON MC zoom 35-70mm f3.5 - 4.5 and a wonderful TAMRON BBAR Multi-Coated Zoom with 'Macro' 85-210mm f4.5
    Initial tests show MAKINON slightly Soft at full aperture and TAMRON useable at full aperture and really sharp for 'Macro' setting.

    Here's a bit of useless information - in Norwegian "gift" means married.

    Very appropriate. You could say the lenses are married to the cameras. To marry up is to match and fit. A gift of language.
