The classic WALTER MANDLER design and considered his "favorite lens"

-No dings, dents or major marks
-Signs of use on the barrel but overall nice to use.

Really a special lens for its optical performance. Not only it renders nicely but also a tighter lens at 75mm focal length AND the miniumum focus is down to 0.7 so you can get even closer on top of the 75mm and the FAST 1.4 giving great bokeh.
I can see why MANDLER considered this his "FAVORITE LENS"
Nice to have a late BLOCK LETTER, upgraded 6 bit lens. A great value and great price! For usability this is THE one to have. A pleasure to have and enjoy.
