You probably know the score with this lens - Angénieux designed and built like a tank with internal focus and zoom. Best build quality I've ever seen on a zoom lens, if you fired this thing from a howitzer I'd be more concerned about whatever it lands on! Aperture ring and screw drive AF so it'll work on anything.

It's not 100% sunshine and lollipops of course; this needs stopping down to get the best results and loses a bit of contrast in bright light. More of a rugged everyday workhorse than a razor-sharp pixel-peeper.

This is optically, mechanically and cosmetically close to mint! Besides a few scuffs on the fancy felt inside of the lens hood, I can't see much to . Optics look clear, I can see a few specks of internal dust but nothing that'd impact image quality. Comes with lens hood (very hard to find now) and original caps.

£200 O.N.O delivered, which includes fully insured postage.
Collection in person from Liverpool welcome for a £10 discount!

Since I'm a new member I'm happy to do the sale through eBay as a Buy It Now, if you don't mind paying an extra tenner or so to cover their greedy selling fees.

OK, somebody asked for sample on digital so here's a bunch of generic test shots using the K1!



70mm, f3.5



28mm, f4



40mm, f2.8



28mm, 2.8



38mm, f5 - things have started to sharpen up nicely here


To be honest even stopped-down this isn't as sharp as I'd expected, I'm not sure whether it's a case of unrealistic expectations (after shooting with the 55mm everything seems soft ) or that the lens needs to be calibrated properly! Anyone else here own the same lens and have some samples to compare to?
