Lester A Dine 105mm f/2.8 1:1 macro (Kiron)

Asking Price
360

Item Description
This lens needs no introduction, the Kiron-made Lester A. Dine 105mm f/2.8 1:1 macro lens. This is the same lens as the famous Vivitar Series 1 105mm macro that people call one of the best macros ever.
Optically, this lens is free of scratches, fungus, dust, or anything else. Coatings are free of defect.
Mechanically, everything is smooth, the aperture blades are free of any oil or debris.
Cosmetically, everything is in great condition except for some scratches on the inner body. This is from removing the Dental Emblems that came with the lens originally. The scratches have been touched up, but in direct light the difference in gloss is apparent.
This is a great chance to own a legendary lens. It has been stated that if Kiron were to produce this lens today, it would cost well over $1000.

For you US residents, with the new Microsoft cashback you could have this lens for $259 and get your cashback instantly. Considering this same type of lens was selling for $500 just a couple of months ago, that's not too shabby.

Just a heads up, the Microsoft cashback is back down to 25%, and I heard a rumor it might be going down to 8%.

Also, I will ship this item for free to the US and Canada.
