I would be interested in buying an excellent example of this lens if realistically priced.
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

The 1:1.4 is MUCH sharper at f1.4.

Keywords: Charming, polite, and generally agreeable.

Thanks for the offer - I'll wait a couple of days to see if I get any replies on the 1.7.
If nothing will then consider the 1.4 - Thanks

I have the 1.4 version and with a hood it is sharp wide open... I'm tending to use it more on my film body (MZ-7) where I find it's results exceptional!
There are a lot more 1.4's around on the 2nd market and they appear to be getting cheaper week by week...
