Additional Details
****I am now including a FREE m28 2.8 lens! It has a dent in the filter ring, but besides that, it works perfectly! It includes generic front and rear lens caps.************


I am re-listing this item after there was a bit of confusion (mostly on my part) about who was the successful bidder on this lens. Absolutely mint, a little more than a year old. I am selling it in anticipation of purchasing a 31ltd. Comes with original front and rear caps, soft pouch and a uv filter (which has been on the lens since I unboxed it). Below are pictures of the lens and an example of a picture taken with it (I can email the original if anyone would like). Edit - please see the identical posting in the closed section for pictures - I can't seem to re-attach the images...)

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Incredible lens, cant believe there are no interested replies.

(The free 28 as a kicker makes this a fantastic deal...I'd jump on it if I didnt already have both lenses already!)

if for some reason you don't find a buyer soon please shoot me an email. I was going to buy this lens after the holidays and I am interested. I will be out of email range until sunday/monday this week. I am in philly so it could be a no-brainer. Thanks, Steve

This is a great deal! I'm stunned at how long this has been up for sale considering the great price and that this lens will go up in cost at the end of next month. Someone grab this while you can. It's without question one of the best wide AF lenses out there.

Geeeez... if the cashback was still at 25% i'd snatch this baby as a backup for my FA35...

Great deal!

Very tempting!

Amazing deal. I sold my FA35 a while ago, thinking I'd get a 31 ltd, and never did. I do miss the focal length....

no, I really must have this as a paperweight on my desk... it matches my other paperweight and I must have symmetry!

as always, jshermann, you make all lenses look great! can't wait to give this lens a whirl...
