    Description
    Gently used Kiron 105mm f/2.8 1:1 Macro lens (also sold as Lester A Dine or Vivitar) in Canon FD mount, with front cap and FD-m4/3 adapter with rear cap.

    Prices on the auction sites are all over the map, $250 shipped seems reasonable but I will consider offers. I prefer Amazon Payments (no fee) but can take PayPal too.

    This is lens is a classic, rendering images with crisp detail around the point of focus and a smooth transition into a soft bokeh/blurred background. Nice long focus throw at macro levels helps achieve precise focus, can also serve as a portrait lens. I've been using it for a while and it's amazing, but I just don't shoot that much macro lately and am selling to fund other gear purchases (the GAS, it never ends...).

    Glass and body are in excellent condition - just some tiny scuffs on the body and some minor specks of internal dust as with all used lenses. See samples I've taken with this lens below and in the sample image thread here on mu-43.com

    Someone here should buy this. If I had a m43 camera with any sort of manual focus aid, I would buy it. But it would be awkward to use with my old E-P1.

    I have used it with an E-P3 and OMD and loved the lens. And that price is very fair. When I first went looking for one, I couldn't find one under $300.
