| p.1 #1 · A rare 200 f/1.8 find (Not available any longer) |
KEH have a 200 f/1.8 in a (-LN) condition, which is an uncommon find, especially at that price.
Going by past experience of many people, when KEH call a lens (-LN), that means it should be "like new" indeed.
However, there are a couple of caveats:
*KEH do not check IQ of their lenses, and not all 200 f/1.8s are equally sharp.
* There used to be a paint shop in S. Korea which did a super job of repainting 200 f/1.8 lenses.
It would be really surprising if KEH's gear appraisors would miss such a thing, but one never knows. Several years ago a number of those repainted (undisclosed) and seemingly mint lenses used to fetch big bucks on ebay.
The 200 f/1.8 is not just a fast/sharp lens, it also does good bokeh.
