Item Description
You can sure spend a lot more for a 300mm prime, if you want to. But the Tokina-made 300mm f5.5 has an excellent reputation for image quality. This is a manual focus, screwmount m42 lens (actually a TX mount so it would be possible to change the mount to other mfg with the proper TX adapter). It has a built-in hood, which is handy. One owner described his as:
Mine is one of the best built lenses I've ever seen. It's not a super fast lens by any means, but it has beautiful contrast, wonderful color reproduction and excellent sharpness.
Check out these image galleries taken with this same model:

including this image gallery of one that even performed well with fungus!

Cosmetically, this lens is not mint. The ribbing on the focusing rings has some scratching. Optically & mechanically it is just fine. (Photos coming below).

$69 plus actual cost shipping. Will be happy to ship worldwide. PM me for a quote to your country. (Serious only, please) No handling or Paypal fees.
