You should consider primes. They are the very best. I read that once right here in this forum.

I'll bid $26 plus paypal and shipping.


in all reality, though, it's all well and good to shop there, but don't ever donate to Goodwill. It's a for-profit company that does little-to-no charity, even though everyone thinks it is one.

I'm taking it apart, and posting a video on YouTube.

Hopefully the clicks/ads I will generate are going to bring in more profit than it would if I normally re-sold it on eBay or some such.

Stay tuned!

Works pretty well.

AF focuses like butter.

No scratches, fungus, or hazing.

Take the glass out and use the barrel for an actual drainpipe. That should get a few views.

Thinking of also using the barrel as a coffee mug or thermos.

you can buy a $15 mug for that, instead of using a $700 lens...

There's a saying; something along the lines of...more money than brains. Ringing a bell right now.
