- Barrel is clean with the usual wear on the black paint aperture control ring.
A nice example overall!
- Focusing is smooth
- Aperture ring is smooth from F3.5 to F18, but strange that it is a bit stiff going back from F18 to 3.5.

- There are a few cleaning morks on the front element
A nice example considering its age and the usual condition on these lenses. Complete and nice to have with its extras. The caps and the container are probably worth $100 on their own. A great price considering on a very nice CLASSIC, compact PANCAKE wide angle lens!
