Richard, Middlesbrough young 50's!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This lens provides good sharp images at what has to be said, second hand prices. I paid what I consider a good price for mine and after seeing what second hand one's were going for jumped at the chance. It is very light.
Bad points:
The build quality is a little lacking. Earlier lenses were metal bodied I think.
