If anyone has one of these in excellent condition that they are thinking of parting with then send me PM, maybe we can work out a sale or a trade of some sort!

p.s. Not the Macro version!

Didn't I buy this lens from you?

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Very nice lens it is too. I loved the M-series version but wanted the convenience of the A-series for my digital camera.

The A series is most certainly a compact little gem of a lens of which I own a fine example.

Sorry it's not for sale but good look with your search.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, vintage lenses and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

No longer required

In the predictable fashion of "Sod's Law" I caved in and bought an M series 100mm f2.8 (same optical design?) only to find an A series within a few days

So if anyone is after an M 100mm f2.8 send me a PM

Ahh, patience is a virtue but the the force to buy is very strong. Yep. sod's law alright, irritating but not the end of the world. The M series 100 f2.8 is a cracking little lens for which I'm sure you will soon find a willing taker
