As I said - this is my fathers lens - so I don't have any pictures on my computer... but ckobain put up a nice shot. I grew up looking at pictures taken with this lens and it was the first camera/lens I learned how to shoot as a teenager so I know it is a beautiful lens

A magnificent lens and a pleasure to use. even in digital and this is the cheapest and best way to reach that 85mm equivalent on a APS C sensor.
I have my copy and it's only fault is I am not good enough.
Bumping this up. All the best with the sale.
