I find this is too large for my needs (both FL and bulk); I will probably seek something like Sigma's 50mm instead. This is in excellent condition with no issues at all. The original owner did not include the hood so that's missing; lens takes 55mm filters but the front element is very recessed so it's not vital to have a hood. Caps and box are included. It's model #172E, made prior to the Di coatings; I have yet to find any flare issues in macro or non-macro images. Note that it has the aperture ring so a lower-price PK adapter does just fine. I have read reports of CA being an issue with this lens - my copy shows very little of it, and I've taken torture-test shots that led to dumping some lenses that I really wanted to like! $300us includes shipping in the USA; for other buyers we'll visit the USPS International page and come up with a final price. No paypal fee, but feel free to chip in.
