If I were in the market for a new lens, this may catch my eye if the price was right.

Thanks very much for that! I have to admit that I never took interest in old lenses (shame on me!) but this one is beautiful and the picture are astonishing!

I have two copies of this lens one is Like New in the original box. I can vouch that everything they say is true!

I have one in mint condition. Bought it on this forum itself. But ashamed to say, I haven't used it nearly as much I should have.
