I won't go into all the attributes of this lens, if you're looking here you likely know it's attributes - especially as a portrait lens on a MFDB or Nikon/Canon/Leica via an adapter. Besides, folks like Jack Flesher and Pham Min Son can speak more eloquently about this puppy than I can.
Why selling? As much as I like it, have taken on a personal project which requires some minor lens cabinet shuffling and have sworn a mantra to keep lens collection to a handful of units only. Call it my personal 7 step program (yeah, right).
Acquired lens from the Pham Min Son (packed in his usual bomb-proof manner). Lens mechanics and glass are immaculate, smooth, etc, etc. Some minor brassing as you'd expect on the hood-mount bayonets. In short, Mint where it counts, Mint- for the normal-use hood bayonet mount wear.
$1300 or reasonably close offer buys you the lens, caps, Hasselblad hood (about a $50 value), a generic Hassy bayonet filter adapter (allows use of normal 77mm screw-mount filters instead of Hassy bayonet mount versions).
For $25 extra, or some sweet talking, will include a Generic Hasselblad-Nikon adapter. Hasselblad R adapter also available, but not both, want to retain one.
Price INCLUDES insured NA shipping. Overseas shipping simply pay actual cost -$25 to roughly reflect price difference.
Payment by Paypal add 3%. CDN EMT, MO or certified cheque fine. USPS International MO also fine - I'm not fussy. Note however, that US cheques will not clear in Canada, hence Int'l MOs.
