comment:This was a great steal for me. I bought this off of Kijiji with a Maxxum 7000 a 70-210 f4 a 35-70 and so on for $350. Anyways, this lens was the deal breaker a chance to own my second copy of this lens and it was in mint condition. Of all the pictures I have taken over the past 15 years those taken with this lens on my Maxxum 7 are some of my favorites.
