Item Description
If you've spent any amount of time on this forum, then this lens needs no introduction, nor does the collectable nature of the Made in Japan and very low serial number copies, which are becoming increasingly rare.
Cosmetically, this lens has seen better days. See the photos to see some scratches on the metal cap, and faded paint on the engraved "16" (regarding the F-stop). It's not an eyesore by any means, in fact the cap is by far the worst thing - the metal on the lens itself is in excellent condition, but I thought I should mention it. As usual, photos make it look worse of course, because they are close up on that very thing - but overall it's in good condition. I'd say EXCELLENT if it wasn't for the cap.
The glass is NOT-QUITE perfect. There appears to be two white flecs inside the lens, looks like they're behind the front element, though I'm not really sure. This is reasonably noticeable (I am judging from an enthusiast's point of view because I figure that's what you guys are... enthusiasts) - but has NO impact on image quality as far as I can see, optically it's perfect, seriously.
Example shot was taken @f1.8
I am as in love with this lens as the reviews had me believe I would be, but I really need some funds fast, so unfortunately it has to go.
The problems I have described are reflected in the price - a perfect condition low serial MIJ copy of this would be more! Don't think it's worth that? As I said, I am in need of funds so make me a reasonable offer!

Postage in Australia is included. The Paypal fee is ALSO included, meaning bank deposit will attract an $11 discount (or of course direct pick up from Newcastle). Worldwide postage, please message me for a price.
Any other questions and offers are welcome - so enjoy!
