    Great Japanese-made zoom lens in excellent condition with clean glass and no fungus. This lens sells around the Internet for $300-350. It's designed for a 1" format, so there's no vignetting/distortion at the edges of a mu-4/3 camera. You can use it with or without the C-mount flange, but I'm not sure what kinds of adapters are required in each case (flange is included, but m43 adapter isn't). It was a bit of an impulse buy for me because it's such a great deal, but I actually already have an old lens that covers this range, and the old lens wins the battle because of sentimental value (my dad bought it in 1984, and I essentially grew up with that lens on his Minolta X-700).

    There's a spec sheet here:

    $75 + shipping.

    Bump... this is a very substantial discount over the retail price for a solid photo/video lens.

    Do you have any example pictures or videos that you've taken with this lens? I'm curious how it looks.

    Well, since it was a bit of an impulse buy, I didn't actually get the correct adapter for it... but since you asked, I took some pictures and a quick video while just holding the lens next to the camera. Beware, the pictures aren't particularly nice... I just took them around my apartment at ISO 1600 without any proper lighting:

    60mm
    P1170546.
    P1170536.
    P1170544.

    300mm
    P1170548.
    P1170549.
    P1170541.

    Video (again, sorry about the shakiness, but I was just holding the lens with my hand):

    Thanks for taking the examples. It looks like a fun lens to play with, but I'm gonna resist for now. I have some lenses I have to get rid of first before I buy anymore.

    Yes it is, thanks for the interest. I haven't bumped the thread because I'm thinking about keeping it (I just realized that it can also mount to M43 if I remove the back flange, so now I'm tempted to keep it because it changes the form factor). But if you want it, it's certainly still available.
