-2nd version ELC example
-Made in Canada in 1969

This is a very rare and desirable "2nd" version short rear element lens but with the 1st version INFINITY focus lock as well as the 12501M front lens shade barrel design.
Favoured as you don't have any issues with meter reading or digital camears with the deep rear element of the first version but looks exactly the same

-No dings, dents or major marks

-Lens shade shows moderate signs of wear
-Focusing is smooth

-Faint cleaning marks on the front but really have no effect and barely noticeable.
This is a rare and desirable lens. Actually much harder to find a 2nd version with the infinity lock over a standard 1st version example. Modest price in comparison to the first and this is a great price for a 2nd version infinity lock version considering it is cosmetically a "used" lens but still wonderful to enjoy. NICE!
