Lens produces amazing picture, but price is reasonable. There is a tiny chip on inner element (does not affect the picture) and cleaning marks and side separation on rear element (sometimes can give you milky shadows on the very right part of the frame - I attached an example, but it happened to me only two times over two days of testing)
That iscorama produces sharp image and hold backlight pretty well.
There is no any evidence that inner chip affects picture. I wasnt able to found it.
Focus is smooth. Front element is clean and has no cleaning marks.
Its not pre-36, but actual 36 version of it, so coverage is really good. In youtube video I added sample of it using nikkor 28mm (its front element is pretty big, so it might clear 28mm lens if front element is small.
I would prefer local pickup in Los Angeles - so you may check if you like the lens.

I really tried to show all the flaws of lens, so there is no surprises
video footage I shot a week ago:
Feel free to come and test it in echo park LA, I will provide 52mm front thread adapter. Feel free to bring your closeup lenses.
Price is firm, even pre-36 versions are sold on ebay for $4200 by bidding, and this one is 36MC with better coverage. So I made pretty big discount already.
