Aperture ring is nice!

Optics 7/10
The glass on these are as per usual
Marks on the glass and spots
They are almost all like this and very rare to find otherwise.
They are a soft coated glass and prone.
Still overall nice but the glass is as such.

This is a collectible lens and and very RARE. The last one I sold was near $6000 without the box.
This one is actually nicer with the box and clean overall.
A must have for any collector or enthusiast.
