Hey Steven,

I bought a very similar one from the same seller about a year ago. I just had Bernie at Super16 Inc in NY take a look at it for overall condition any service needed. He gave it a clean bill of health and mentioned that it is very sharp.

Sounds like a killer deal. I have had many satisfactory transactions with this seller.

Good luck!

Hey, I was just about to buy a Russian MIR 37mm from this same guy, M42 mount (for my K3), and he seemed like the real deal via our emails. Not a BS or scam artist, but I was still a little nervous at first about doing the whole bank check thing. The only reason I didn't buy it is because I think I found the same lens stateside.

A lot of Ukranian sellers are using this company called Protek, which accepts payments to the Ukraine via PayPal, and I don't know why the heck he doesn't sign on with them. Yeah, it might cost him a little more, but he would sell twice as much stuff.

Yes, ebay seller sovjac's method of payment may seem a bit unconventional, but it seems to work-- and it's gotta be good for him because he avoids paypal fees.

In the dealings I have had with him he provides a name and address of someone in Canada that you send a US International Postal Money Order to, and when the money is received in Canada he sends the goods from Ukraine. Man, it sounds even more sideways when I write it down.

But it works, and he's got good gear at good prices.
