Canon 50mm f1.8 Mk 1 for $40...

Canon 50mm f1.8 Mk 1 for $40...


...for me that is!!!!

Popped into the local Cash Converters today - very rarely see anything worth looking at. But this Canon 50mm f1.8 Mk 1 lens on an older camera caught my eye.

Had a quick look - all pristine...glass, casing and mechanics (what there are!!). Much sturdier looking than the Mk 2 - metal mount, distance scale and more user-friendly manual focus ring.
They wanted $50, haggled down to $40
Last one I saw on ebay was going past $150 when I lost interest in the auction!!

Sweet - small victories eh!!??

Another weapon in my growing widefield arsenal!
(...and a sweet little portrait lens to boot)

Toodle Pip!!
Doug

Hope So Andrew - going by Bill Christie's images, this little lens should be a wee cracker!
