I just spotted this on Ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Super-MACRO-lens-2x-OTAMAT-20mm-F1-7-for-CANON-EF-NIKON-AF-LEICA-MD-PENTAX-DSLR-/271143483733?pt=UK_Camera_Batteries&hash=item3f21693955#ht_979wt_924

This listing is a bit odd. Last year we had a situation with a £18 Otamat 20mm 6 element f/2.8 lens sold by a seller with odd sales practices - story and this lens here.

Same seller this year is now selling this, a 20mm 7 element f/1.7 Otamat "super macro" lens for £60 or so. But it sure looks like the 20mm f/2.8 of last year and it even links to a thread on pm.net about the 20mm f/2.8 of last year. So is it a different lens or not? odd.

Beyond that though these Microfilm reader lenses do quite well. The 10mm lens he also offered wasn't such a hit but the 20mm f/3.5 worked fine, provided you could find a decent mount to put them in. Looks to me the seller has put them in plastic mounts.

I recieved this (the only) topic reply notification link:

http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=126139#126139

Clicking on it gave a forum message that the reply does not exist.

Thanks, Johan.

It normally indicates a deletion. Strange that no alert was sent for the replacement.

[Edit:] It just arrived [Edit ends].

To resurrect a month-dead thread...

I've been seeing these over and over again as I have a saved search running for "OTAMAT 20" for curiosity's sake (my JML 21 search has returned nothing but jewelry and Magic Bullet blenders).

Has anyone tried this specific lens, the 7 element one? The seller's tiny test shots aren't convincing me of its quality, nor is the link to a discussion on this forum over what may or may not be the same lens...

It all seems a little risky.

"JML 21mm lens" is currently unfruitful but "JML lens" gives a selection, some maybe with potential.
