This lens has just been fully professionally serviced around 1 year ago.
The Planar® lens is the most successful camera lens design ever created. This nearly symmetrical layout provides the lens designer with numerous means to correct aberrations extraordinarily well, even for wide open apertures. The ideal basis for high-performance lenses with great color correction, high speed, flat image plane (this is where the name comes from) and low distortion. The Planar® lens design is the basis for nearly all professional ’workhorse’ lenses on earth and in space today.
The original ‘C’ lens was supplied in both silver and black, with a Compur shutter. The black and a small number of the silver lenses have a T* anti-reflection coating.
Cosmetic: Light surface wear to the exterior. The filter/shade bayonet shows only a little wear.
Optical: The optics are excellent – free from all scratches, debris and fungus.
