Item Description
I bought this lens on Ebay 3 years ago, and I have had some very satisfying results from it, but a need for cash and my preference for primes mean that it's time to look for a new owner.

I have described the lens as being in "poor" condition, since as you will see from the pictures, it has some fairly heavy scratching and wear on the top surface. I hasten to add that it has no dents or other more serious damage, and mechanically and optically it is fine. The lens was this way when I bought it, and if you are looking for a lens for taking photographs rather than sitting in a display case, this could be the opportunity for you.

More particularly, the glass is clean and clear, and free of fungus or scratches. There is some dust inside, as may be suspected but I have no reason to believe that this has any visible effect on image quality.
The AF/MF collar, PZ collar, aperture ring, focus and zoom rings all function correctly.

The lens comes with its original
  • lens caps
  • soft case
  • hood
  • tripod collar

I'm including some of the pictures (obviously reduced resolution) I have taken with this lens.

Please contact me with any questions or requests for further images.

I am interested in getting a sigma 180mm macro, and would consider a trade involving this lens.
