Item Description
I got this lens off a bundle I purchased while back. It is in very good condition, and I find it a surprisingly good performer. I might not be a very experimented photographer, but the colors rendition and the overall sharpness of the lens is quite good.

This lens is well suited for DSLR with its A aperture settings. Macro 1:2 (not true macro but still better than a lot of others).

The lens is all metal build, very solid feel, the focus is very smooth. Aperture blade are snappy and oil free. Free of haze and fungus as well. This lens is a slide to zoom, the lens therefore do not extend any longer than what it is.
It comes with original front lens cap and generic rear lens cap.

I included a few test shots I took with it. They are very dirty test shots all taken handheld and at 200mm. I also did a quick comparison at f/8 between my da 50-200mm at 200mm and this lens.

Questions are welcome - I also forgot to mention that the lens is big and heavy compared to my DA 50-200mm.
