   Canon 50mm f1.8 ltm lens

Asking Price Shipping Amount Condition
On Hold (Best Offer) None Good

I'm selling a Canon 50mm f1.8 ltm lens. The lens is in User condition. It comes with a metal front cap (I don't think its original) and a rear cap that's for shipping protection only, as it is slightly too large for this lens. Also included in the sale is a plastic adapter ring and a 3D-printed rectangular lens hood.

As you can see from the pictures, the filter ring is damaged. I was able to fit the plastic adapter ring onto the lens, and then slide the lens hood onto the adapter ring. Also shown in the photos is a small chip of paint lodged inside the lens elements. This didn't seem to affect image quality as far as I could see. I sent the lens to Youxin Ye for a CLA service. Here is what he reported after the service was completed:

"Jamie, I have your lens done. Canon 50/1.8 lens - Someone worked on this lens in the past, put a lot epoxy over the lens barrel screws, we have no idea why this person did this and we are afraid to make any damage, since one screw just fell off stripped in the past, though it does not affect the lens function. We did our best on the lens. CLA'd, cleaned and lubricated focus helical, the focus action is good now. The lens has slight play due to past wear and tear, but does not affect usage. We can only do some lubrication to the aperture ring since all screws on the aperture ring control parts are filled with epoxy. The aperture ring feels better than used to be. Cleaned oil off aperture blades. Cleaned optics removed haze inside. Lens is clean and clear now consider its age. Tested the lens with digital M body, lens is in focus and produce good images. Regards, Youxin Ye"

I used the lens on a m4/3 camera and it made excellent images. I'd like to sell the lens for $80 (the amount I paid for the CLA). Price includes CONUS shipping and PayPal fee.

Had this model and LOVED it. Draws beautifully. One of my best/fav photos was taken with it. A shame about the paint chip inside. The square hood looks sweet though! Good luck with the sale, Jamie.
