This lens is a beut. I've had it for a very short amount of time and made some amazingly sharp pictures. However, I recently upgraded to a Nikon FM3a which will not accept non-AI lenses, so I was either forced to convert this one or buy a new one. I guess you all know which route I took
This lens is in perfect condition. There are absolutely no scratches on any elements, 100% fungus free and treated and stored with care for its entire life. The coatings are perfect and have not been marred by improper cleaning. In addition, it was stored and used with a UV filter installed (not included).
Some specs about the lens and what's included:
-Nikon Nikkor 50mm Normal focal length for 35mm SLR
-Aperture range from f1.4 to f16 (I can honestly say that you get wonderful indoor photography with this lens. I've taken photos at 1/125 with completely ordinary indoor lighting (no flash, no light boxes, etc))
-Close focus is 0.45 meters (<1.5 feet)
-Front and Rear lens caps included
The aperture ring is very snappy with nice tactile feedback. Focus is slick with no gunky, stiff feeling. Aperture blades are as clean as the day this lens was made. PLEASE ask if you have any more questions.
I am looking for $125, but as always, price is negotiable. Feel perfectly free to send an offer my way and I will always respond within a few hours. If lens is bought at asking price, I will ship insured for free.
I have many pictures available of the lens, so just email me and I will give you the web link (astromart won't allow me to post them).
