[SOLD] A series 50mm f/2.0 & f/1.7

I will state publicly that both of these lenses are in wonderful shape optically, mechanically, and cosmetically. They include lens caps shown. If you are not delighted with the performance of either lens, I will refund the purchase price upon return of the lens.

Shipping costs not refundable.

The A series 50mm f/2.0 is finally getting its due. The 2.0 is a terrific lens in its own right and is finally breaking out from the shadow of its venerable siblings; the f/1.4 and f/1.7 50s.

An all around comfortable lens that is easier to focus than the f/1.4 and at mid aperture rivals the f/1.7 for resolution and overall image quality. Some say it offers a deeper depth of field than the other 50s.

Asking $40 plus shipping, and as you can see it is in great shape cosmetically and optically.

Most on these boards know & love this lens, the A series 50mm f/1.7. Asking $70 + shipping

i don't know why people snub the f2s.. they are very bright and only 1 stop less than a f1.4 ...
