    I have one I might sell as about to buy a new lens. I'm sure I have the box and all bits, it's just over 2 years old and I'm the first owner. It's in excellent condition and not really seen much use.

    Make me an offer and I'll consider it? Don't know how much it would cost to post?

    Edit: Just found box, has the front and rear caps and soft bag. Looks like new.

    Edit edit: it's the manual focus version btw!

    Thanks Jon. They're about £230 grey, so how does £160 delivered sound?

    Taken a few pics this morning as up early with my youngest! Postage looks to be about £20, I'd be happy if we could meet at £170 including delivery?

    I did notice a few tiny scratches in the front coating when I took the pics, I'd more describe them as specks if you know what I mean, you can just about see on close photo. These will obviously have no effect on taken photos but wanted to be totally clear.

    Hi Jon. I think that delivery RMSD (small parcel up to 2kg) would be £11. At least that's what it was for a camera I posted a couple of weeks ago). I have to say though that I'm a little bothered by the scratches on the front element as they will obviously affect any future resale on my part, even if they don't impact on the actual photos. With that being said and certainly not wanting to annoy or lowball you, I would adjust my offer to £150 delivered.

    I notice that the picture on the box isn't of the Sony version. If you are willing to consider my offer, can you take an actual "side on" snap to show the entire lens?

    Cheers …. and I hope that you're not offended. Certainly that's not my intention.

    Calvin

    Calvin, not annoyed at all.

    It's annoying to me the marks are even there as I'm uber careful with my stuff. Actually I should rephrase scratches because they are not, however I do understand you point.

    The box shows the DSLR version, for the E mount all Samyang did was factory fit an adapter to the back. I can get more photos no problem.

    I'd go to £155? I don't have PayPal though (must be only person in the world!) Bank Tranfer ok?

    Edit: it was bothering me so much I just gave it another clean and looks like they were just tiny dirt specs? Looks unmarked now.

    Haha. That's fair enough. I'll go back up to my original £160 if that's OK with you. If so, lets proceed to PM, send me your details and I'll do a BT at lunchtime.

    :thumbsup:
