Didnt see any samples for these wonderful cheapies.
So lets post them here if you have one
it should really be called an f5.6 :P because 5.6 and above is where mines usable.
I'll start things off, and probably be the only one posting.
picked my promaster up for 60 bucks, (think i over paid).
get error code if change aperture and forget to pump the dof preview :P

well here it is

i got mine for 60 bucks used a bh photo, im sure they are cheaper elsewhere.
it is good at 4.0+,
mine is a promaster 100mm macro f3.5, they have other names like phoenix, vivitar, etc the usual rebrandings.


my post processing was uping blacks and exposure, for slight more pop.
