Item Description
Selling an uncommon lens - a M series zoom lens, the M 40 - 80mm / f2.8 - 4.0. The two most desirable characteristics of the lens is the relative wide aperture for a zoom lens (f2.8 at 40mm, and f4 at 80mm is not common for zooms), and the macro function: twisting the zoom ring to the macro mode at 80mm allows for close focusing via a push pull action. Allows for creative close ups.

Lens is quite sharp stopped down by 1 - 2 f stops, build quality is solid. The glass is flawless, body I would rate a 9, with the lens showing signs of careful usage. Please note that the white 'ball' (used for attaching the lens to the SLR in the dark) is missing, but that does not affect its functionality at all.

Finally, some pictures of the lens and 1 taken with the lens using the macro function.









Pls PM if interested. Thanks!

thanks jboyde! yep i agree. Its quite a nice piece of glass to play with, with its unconventional zoom range but relatively large max aperture. Letting this go to free up space in my dry cab for a carl zeiss 29mm that I'm getting in.
