Yes, but they are also pretty cheesy reproductions.  Much flimsier than the
original, and I wouldn't be surprised to see rust blooming soon as well.

...and that is why I've held onto a decent original L525 (and an NOS lens for
same) for when/if I get around to trying to adapt same onto my Herald! :-)
