Actually Series 1 lenses go back to the late Seventies, and the ones that were made by Kiron are pretty darned good for their day. (the 90-180 macro,
90 macro, original 70-210 f3.5, the one-touch varifocal 35-85mm f2.8, etc.)
Check out Bob Monaghan's Third Party Cult Classics lens page if you own any older MF cameras and are looking for lenses:
Warning: You can spend days surfing Bob's photography pages, not only is he knowledgeable (though opinionated) he's a pretty good writer and an ace
list-maker. If you really like medium format Bronicas, his pages are a BLACK HOLE for time.
