I got the 35-70 Ai from eBay being the only bidder. It is mint! Unbelievable workmanship and materials. The lens was introduced in Germany in 1976 and touted as being as sharp as the new AFS 24-70. I tested it and it may be a keeper and the resident lens on the D700. The pictures posted today come with a "DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME" home warning! I didn't, I went to the range to take them!

Congratulations on the 35-70mm Ken, now I need one.
Great pawn James
Ray, I also need a 135mm 2.0, sharp gull

Happy Birthday Sue
Beautiful whatever that flower is Jay
Kevin, that is an older SW 38 special, very nice
Who shot the D7000 Gregg? Nice rust and Polara
Curtis, good to see you with a 55 1.2, you are the guilty party for the two SCs here
John, beautiful girls
There are quite a few 55mm 1.2 fans here, I am one of them. So, the second SC came in, paid $250 with shipping included and was sent two day. This one had better focusing ring that my original SC, but my original one has cleaner glass, by a little bit, and cleaner mount, plus it is ai already, so I swapped focusing rings.
Now the original SC is prettily dressed, and the newer one still looks fine. Will hang onto it for a while, convert it to ai.
Here they are:

Now I need to get a mint Nippon Kogaku 55mm 1.2 series 97xxxxx.
The rarest thing here is this shade, screw in not snap in F type, took me three years to find it:

Now about those guns, we need to stop before all our international friends scare away from this thread.
