Description
-Serial #3434751
-Black finish
-Made in Wetzlar, Germany in 1986
-Third version example after the E58, E60 with pins for the hood, and then this one. 
-Extremely fast f1 lens
-Known for having its own character of creamy and swirfly bokeh
-Excellent for portrait and low light photography

This is actually my favorite of all the Noctilux F1 lenses. This is the only one where you can reverse the lens hood and carry it on the lens. And if need be, you can take it off completely unlike the version 4 where the hood is fixed on the lens. 
Very nice example and a in my opinion the best F1 version of them all. The lovely version III with the reversible clip lens hood!
