310 or near offer.
Can be sharp at 1.2 and a bit "dreamy" and then crazy sharp as the apertures are smaller.

selling as I don't use it enough to justify.

Highly regarded lens.

here's a couple that sold on ebay somewhat recently

possibly consider a trade plus/minus cash for 31mm f1.8, a tamron 180mm f2.5, not sure what else I might like to try.

the lens is in great condition, everything working as it should, crisp clicking aperture ring etc. etc.

feel free to ask any questions and here's some pics of the lens and with it. the close-up of the key is using one small extension tube, really does a good job with this too! I shot loads of macros with it recently.








































and please see my previously withdrawn listing for more pics, especially people at 1.2

Best offer where, forum of ebay? This wasn't really transparent (not that I could have afforded it anyway).

Crikey by the time Ebay and Pay pal take their bit that's a canny bit less than I thought you would have taken or I would have put in an offer.

I know. It hurts. Justi didn't want to lose the sale quibbling over 30-40 quid.

of course you're welcome to put in an offer on the other 50mm I've got for sale... (Pentax-F 50mm f1.7)

Yep, I would have paid that, but I'll only offer fairly near what a forum member asks.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined
