    This lens is "scarce" outside of Japan. This one has a 4-digit SN, under 5000. It is 5 elements in 3 groups, from what i have read. This lens uses 40mm screw in accessories, same as the Canon 50/1.5 and other Canon lenses. It's fashioned after the Leica 90/4 Elmar, is hard-coated. the glass on this one is almost perfect. Focus smoothed out with some use.

    Wide-open on the M9, ISO2500.
