    Where are you located?

    This lens is in great condition used in the dry environment of Utah and a non smoking house.
    The case is not in great shape outside but that is normal as you may have noticed with those cases from that era.

    It is amazingly sharp and many consider it equal to some L glass because it actually has one Low Dispersion element. In fact, it controls CA much better than my FD 200mm F2.8 IF for example.
    It is a very versatile lens too as you can see from my photos it does sports and amazingly sharp portraits!

    You can see images of this lens in my Flickr page:

    Please check the images and ask me anything you need to know. The only thing I see on the front glass is something on the coating like it was some smudges but I tried removing it a little and got scared of damaging the coating or something (I am far from a lens expert!) so since I never noticed any issues with my images I just forgot about it. You can see some of it on the lens photos.

    IMPORTANT: As you know with old lenses, condition is what REALLY matters and here you have a proven performer so if you want to play it safe, this is the one to get. ;) 

    Thanks for looking!

    Only trade I am interested is a Canon FD 300mm F2.8. Thanks
