comment:I bought this lens used 18 ago years with a dynax 7000i and I still use it!I now have a dynax 7 and varius other lenses but this little fellow is still my main lens.18 years of hard use and hundreds or thousands of rolls.From the alps to sahara.I still cant believe that this little lens could be that sharp and with so nice colours.Buy a good one now.Size does not always matter.I have tried canon and nikkor lenses and they don't compare.So much distortion at their ends!My photos looked like eggs!
