    I thought a tele lens could be useful when photographing the streets of France.
    Boy, was I ever wrong.
    Photo's of a basket full of baguettes at 200 yards... foooey
    Swirling crowds of people in open air markets using an f/8 lens... not my style.

    Ok, so my experiment flopped.

    My flop is your gain.
    Like I said, It's like new.

    $1600 + shipping. I'm not set up for PayPal, but Visa/MC is ok.

    Don' get me wrong, there's nothing sub-standard about the lens.
    As a medium format rangefinder telephoto, it's outstanding.
    A nice compliment to the M7's lineup of fine lenses.

    It just didn't suit my style of photography.

    Well, I just realized that the nice folks in Hong Kong have devalued this lens to less than $1000.

    I'll follow suit.

    $950 (free USPS shipping to CONUS)

    That's a great deal for this lens! This lens is still available new, and it costs $2,057 from B&H, so this is a really great price. I tend to shoot with normal and slightly wide lenses, otherwise I would have been seriously tempted by this.

    Reinhold, good luck with the sale!


    PS: It is my personal opinion that you should not price this so low, but of course that is your prerogative. :smile:

    Yep, it's still here, waiting for someone to give it a good home.
