    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.

    Had some interest, but it's still available.

    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.
