As far as I'm concerned they are all users.<G>.  I have one that is in 
decent condition just shows some wear on barrel but otherwise alright. 
Will include lens hood (VG) but I'm not sure if I have any extra caps. 
It's a black Canadian. $500.  I also have a 50 F1.5 Summarit in real
nice condition but has some dirt inside ( doesn't affect picture quality
but could use a cleaning ~$35).  $ 325.  I want to sell one or the
other.  The Summarit is an amazing lens and I really like it.  Not quite
as contrasty as the Summicron but for low light portraits it makes a
fantastic rendition.  for all around use the Summicron would be a better

Thanks Mark
