    Pretty. I saw one of these yesterday for $20 or so. Worth it?

    Nice, thanks for sharing. Have you noticed much CA? That's been my issue with older legacy telephotos.

    I have not noticed any CA with Hexanon lenses.

    $20.00 is a good price for one of these.

    where do you find all these different lenses? I look in thrift stores and some yard sales, and I have only come across one that I wouldn't buy! I must be doing something wrong!
    I used to see cheap lenses on websites and ebay---now the prices seem to have jumped, and there is always a mention of using them with micro 4/3 cameras!!

    Most of my Hexanon lenses I got off eBay before Micro 43 came on the scene. I only get a find at a Thrift Store about once in twenty visits. I have had a lucky 2 weeks finding or been given 6 lenses for a total of $22.00.

    Well...I wish I had your luck!! I came on to the scene a little too late. I look on ebay, and all the prices seem to be jumping up on older manual lenses.

    I love the built-in lens hood. My version has been modified for the 4/3 version so that I can use it on my e-5, but works great on my epm2 with the MMF-3 adaptor...I forget how sharp this lens is...I need to get out and shoot it more.

    I recently got one of these off evilbay,
    when it arrived in the proper named case it looked like it had never been used. amazingly mint condition.
    I still haven't shimmed or tested it yet ... got to get onto that.

    I enjoy using this lens when the opportunity presents itself.
