Item Description
This is an exceptionally clean version of this lens. This not a mirror lens but one of the older, inexpensive ,manual focus 500mm lenses with adjustable aperture. Has f/stops in full stops from f/8 to f/32. It has manual diaphragm control.
I acquired this lens about a year ago and it looks like it has hardly ever been used. There's not a mark on it that I can find.
Glass is clean and clear, no haze, marks, fungus, scratches.
Aperture is perfect.
Focus is nice and smooth.
Has original built in tripod collar.
Comes with both original caps, as well as original leather case and original box.
Edit: Just noticed this is a Five Star brand lens.

There have been a few people interested in a lens such as this because of my recent examples in various moon photography and lens sample threads.
Maybe change the listing title next week and see if the fish will nip at the bait.
With the right tripod and circumstances, this can be an interesting lens.

Right now, I don't have any sample images. Maybe tomorrow I will have time for some.

I extend an open invitation to the potential buyer of the lens to perform a search for Five Star 500mm and post images in those threads in the coming weeks.
