On offer today we have a wonderful example of this high grade zoom lens for Canon FD mount cameras. Condition is very good and estimated at Exc++ 94% and comes complete with manufacturer's front and rear caps.
This lens has a single push/pull type zoom and focus ring, and employs the mechanical compensation system. Its closest focusing distance is 2 m (6.6 ft.), which is an improvement over the 2.5 m (8 ft.) minimum focusing distance for the F 85 - 300 mm f/4.5 lens. Aberration correction is maintained by increasing the focal magnification (decreasing the overall length) and by using a new compensation lens system, as well as with a special correction lens in the second group of the relay. The focusing ring has a different texture than earlier version.
