Would you buy it ?

Would you buy this lens: A20 / 2.8 some scratches on the barrel, a bit slow blades f/11 and smaller apertures.... $150 ?

Price is right, but I'm a bit concerned by the slow blades...

I would email Eric Hendrickson and ask him if he could service the aperture diaphragm. He may not go wider than 24mm but it wouldn't hurt to ask. At the price you state, it may be cost effective to get it serviced and come out good.

I'd agree with Blue and it will probably cost about $60-100 to fix. Even at that, it's a good value.

Yup, I would buy it and get it serviced.
