Very nice lens. Very rare and has all the collectibilty factorys. The lens itself is maybe one of THE all time lenses to have. Iconic and to find one in the RARE black finish, late # and all makes this lens that much more special. Maybe the ULTIMATE as some would consider. Really fabulous to have have enjoy!
