I purchased this last year form a member here, and have decided that I prefer a different focal length, (24mm), so I am selling this lens to replace it with that one.
This is the last of the pre-ASPH versions, and some consider it to be the best of all the 28mm lenses. It's apparently not as sharp as the ASPH in the center, but sharper in the corners.
The lens is optically in mint condition, so no problems there. There are a few rub marks on the back metal rim, and a previous owner touched them up with some black marker. They are just visible in the second photo.
The lens is 6-bit coded for use with an M-8 or M-9. On all the rest, that is not important.
I have $1150 in the lens, and I'd like to get that back out and pass it on to someone who will use it. I'll ship it to you through fedex ground or another preferred method at your expense. I'll accept Paypal at your expense as well.
Please PM or email me.
(The photos are from the original seller (to me). I'll post some additional ones shortly.)
