Heads up

Not sure if this would be a good place to post this, but a nice example came up on one of my normal camera websites. Maybe somebody would like this for just the lens if nothing else.

I can think of a lot of cameras and lenses to buy for a lot less than $2600. But that's me.

Taylor Hobson lens is one of the best, they were individually tested and the test film was supplied with the lens when new. Mine shown on my Bessa R2.I bought it new in 1980 when they were being sold off from the factory, cost 20

Yes very nice. This lens is an impressive technical accomplishment as were so many of the vintage LTM primes of a by-gone era.
