    I inherited a few old lenses my mom used on her canon. As far as I can tell there's nothing too exceptional here but maybe you guys know more about them:

    Sigma uc zoom 28-70mm 1:3.5-4.5
    Access p-mc macro 28-80mm 1:3.5-4.5
    Rmc tokina 80-200 1:4

    And also:
    C/fd vivitar mc 75-205mm 2x matched multiplier

    Thanks to anyone who has used one of these before or knows anything.

    I owned his big brother , so not much of a help on this one ( 35-70 2.8-4) , but by browsing i found this link :

    the closest lens from my collection would be 28-80 but unfortunately its is not a UC ( theta series)

    As you know sigma produced lenses for different mounts , now this will only give you a little preview about what to expect from them , you should know that M4/3 is very different to 35mm film some lenses shine that are crap on full frame and the other way around as well great lens on 35mm can become absolute crap on m4/3.

    Hope it is useful.

    Nothing to write home about, but your mom would know anyway.

    You could try them on a m4/3 camera, but manual-focus zooms don't really give you anything more than what's currently available in native lenses. In fact they give you much, much less.
