I'm only replying to this to say that this is a great fun lens. I've had one of these for about 15 years, bought after reading a good review in Pop Photo magazine. Now normally I wouldn't put too much stock in everything I read in magazines, but Herbert Keppler thought it was a great lens for the money. For the money being the key words here. It wasn't very expensive, but delivered very respectable results. I've had a lot of fun with this lens, and taken some really nice photos with it. Some of my favorite being on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. Someone should buy this and have some real wide angle fun with it. If you can find the original lens hood, it will help in the sun.
