    I cut my photo teeth with this lens on a black H3v body in 1963. It was my first 35mm SLR and this was a "high speed" lens for me.

    Very sharp, some beauty marks on the barrel. Glass clean and clear. No fungus, fog, cleaning marks, scratches, coating issues, etc. The focus is buttery. The aperture blades are snappy and oil-free. The distance scale is loose; focuses perfectly, but you can't read the distance. It can be easily fixed, but I'm not up for it. $20, plus shipping. PayPal OK, use gift option.

    That lens and its siblings are one of the last screaming deals left in lens-land; hope this sells fast for you.
