Elicar 90mm f2.5 1:1 Macro Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Elicar 90mm f2.5 1:1 Macro Lens

Asking Price
150 USD

Item Location
Los Angeles (United States)

Item Description
For Sale is a Elicar V-HQ Multicoated 90mm f2.5 macro in Excellent Plus Condition in PK/M Mount.

This is a classic lens. Sometimes sold under different brands like Panagor or Vivitar, this macro has earned is well deserved reputation from its excellent performance and beautiful build quality. It does 1:1 without any adapters. It is half a stop faster than a typical f2.8 macro. In personal testing against a Tamron 90mm Di Autofocus Macro, it outresolved the Tamron in almost all aperature and is brighter to boot. Plus it has a much longer minimum focus distance at 1:1 than the Tamron. I have also used the Kiron made Series 1 105mm macro and this lens is basically every bit as good (except without the A setting). This lens is in the KM mount so you will need to use the "green" button with your DSLR.

This copy is about as nice as they come. The mutlicoating is perfect. The glass only has minimal amounts of dust. The focus is super smooth. The body is very clean and free of defects. Aperture ring clicks solidly and the blades are oil free. It is so nice it even still has its original inspected in Japan sticker still attached. The Elicar brand was originally marketed as dental macros, so this also has the dental range stickers on there (which are removable if you so desire). Basically, this is about as nice a used copy of this Komine made 90mm macro you can find. Includes generic front and rear caps.
