Described as the poor man's 77 Ltd... well, I'm now an FA77 owner, so can let this little gem go:

Fantastic, compact little M lens. I have found this to be an outstanding lens, similar in character to my M50/1.4.

A touch soft wide open (but perfectly usable), this thin is razor sharp from f/2.8 onwards. It does "blue-finge" on high contrast edges at wide apertures - but I have found this to be non-probematic, and can be negated in PP.

See all the glowing reviews here, where it has a solid "9.0" rating, and sample shots:

My copy is in very, very good condition. The optics are perfect, aperture snappy and oil-free, and casing is in very good condition with very minor signs of use. Has always been used with a UV filter in my ownership (not included).

If you are not happy with the condition on arrival, I am open to returns (if you pay return postage).

I'm after 195 plus P&P.
