The lens was purchased in January 2012 and will be supplied with the original receipt from Jessops. That means there are 8 months left on the original guarantee. It comes with the box, manual and lens bag - the same had you just purchased it. It's a beautiful lens but I have been taken by the Panasonic Leica 25mm which has been stuck on my camera for a month now. I have purchased a couple of things on the forum and I have feedback on my profile. I'm pretty firm on price - I think £210 is a fair price for this outstanding and often out of stock lens. It will be despatched by Royal Mail Special Delivery within 24 hours of receipt of cash. If you have any questions feel free to message me.
