This is a rare and strange lens.  I bought mine used on Ebay for $12.  It is hilarious, but shoots very nice photos.

A little info on this masterpiece of cheap kit lens.  First, it's a kit lens.  From the Film Era.  It was made for an APS film camera.  But there was no such thing as a crop lens at the time, and this lens is Full Frame.  You could buy it separately, you did not have to buy it as a kit.

Specifically it was made for the Canon EOS IX http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EOS_IX.  Which was a sales flop.
