Question on a non Canon Lens?

Since there are good number of knowledgeable people here, I would like to ask this question:

Has any one heard of Century lens? This is one older probably 60s and 70s tele making manual lens name that I guess has a major company behind the selling name. I am interested in the Tele-Athenar of Century. Any info?

Re: Question on a non Canon Lens?

There were a bunch of what I am going to guess the lens you question is, made way back. They may still make some for all I know or care these days.

In a word they were/are horrible compared to an “L”. Don't waste your money and don't waste it on those adapters for early lens to EF either.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.

Re: Question on a non Canon Lens?

Yes I know that they were mostly soft.

But very light mostly made up of 4 group or similar lens elements so very basic construction for low price tag.

But who was the real company behind them? I would thinkj one of hte major names of olden days that is no more in business now.,
