Description: Hello,

The lens is in excellent condition. This lens is in Canon FD mount. The exterior shows some signs of use, but it looks wonderful overall. The rubber focus ring is also in very nice shape on this one. The glass has no scratches or damage, but looking close I can see some light dust and what may be a bit of light haze inside near the periphery of the glass. No fungus detected. I used this lens often on an E-M1, and on my Canon A-1 film camera, and my own tests and comparisons reveal it to be every bit as sharp as the Olympus 60mm 2.8 macro, or the new 7-Artisans 60mm 2.8 macro, although the vivitar renders a slightly warmer image. Read the reviews on this lens and you'll find it to be praised as one of the better vintage macros for mirrorless cameras. It goes to 1:1 magnification without an extension tube. The focus on this one feels a little heavily damped, but is very smooth. The aperture works precisely, and I see no signs of oil or anything on the blades. No adapter is included, but I use a K&F Concepts adapter with this lens, and I recommend them if you need one. A sample image of a circuit board, taken with this same lens mounted on an E-M1 with an adapter is included below. Includes original metal lens cap, and a rear cap.

The price includes Priority Mail or FedEx ground shipping in the USA and the PayPal fee.

I will package this very carefully, and I will mail it out quickly for you.

If I can help with any questions, please let me know.
Thank you
