Item Description
Here's my beautiful M42 pancolar 80mm f1.8 - I hope you're aware that this is an incredibly desirable lens, and it takes lovely photographs - one of my first ever test photos with this lens has become my favourite picture of my daughter so far - it has a great deal of magic in it.
I cleaned and reconditioned the lens and set it up when i got it, and it's tip top, the aperture's snappy, focus smooth. no dust, fungus or anything else - it's clean as a whistle and in as good condition as you're ever likely to see. Must sell now, sadly, to fund other non-photographic requirements

In the main "market place" page below the title it shows $420 not 420, which could be the reason for your query. I think the price is 420 UK pounds.

Many a time I too get such surprises, the main page shows USD but the actual listing would be in Euro or in Pound. I do not know if the seller has to select the currency while listing. If not, it could be a bug in the website that always it shows the price as USD in the "market place" main page. In that case it would be nice if the site administrator notes it and corrects it.

Yeah it's 420 pounds sterling. the marketplace seems to assume that everything is dollars.

some pics taken with this lens

a few snaps with this lens - i just whizzed through lightroom grabbing a few.... makes me more and more sad to part with it - a *high* proportion of the photos i truly love have come from this lens... sigh..

Have put more pics of the actual lens (taken today) on my flickr stream. I would WAY prefer to sell through here rather than ebay - their fee's going to be north if 50.... sheesh.

here's a general (and very impressive!) flickr search for pancolar 80mm photos:

and here below is my flickr stream with photos of the actual lens:
