    The glass is in pristine condition. I have not spotted any of the photos using Photoshop. Any marks on the glass is surface dust. I bought it from Ffordes last year and have used it sparingly since. It produces great results as a portrait lens and focuses down to 1m. It is considered by many to be the best lens in the Zenzanon-PS line up for portrait photography.

    There is a small scratch in the rubber grip of the barrel. It was there when I bought it from Ffordes, most likely a scratch mark from a stray darkslide or the like.

    I'm asking £350 for it plus £20 international tracked shipping from Sweden.

    Also, I'm selling an adapter for Canon EOS, which adapts SQ lenses to fit Canon EOS. In perfect condition. Asking £30 plus £10 international shipping.

    Will cover all shipping costs if both items purchased together.

    Great lens: but hard to sell

    You have inspired me to get this lens out of MOTH balls. They are rare on the open market and over priced at KEH. It's the only lens for a tight head shot. The PS 150 won't do it. Good luck selling Marcus. It's a lens worth the wait, but people don't realize it's potential. I could never afford to buy it again.

    Just putting in a good word for this lens. Couple its longer focal length with its closer focusing distance (1 meter to the 1.5 meters of the 150), and it is a perfect choice for tight portraits. It is a modern design, and all around an exceptional lens. The price is very fair, given its performance and relative rarity. I've seen some prints from this lens. If I shot SQ instead of ETR I'd be all over it, even with shipping to the US.
