Wonderful sharp lens but auto focus feature is going to waste on me,...cut my teeth on manual back in 1962,..don't even know how to use auto focus,...at 75 I'm a dinosaur even shooting this beauty with my Nikon D800E ....your gain if interested.

I bought this lens new from Adorama in 2017 at $796.95.
Due to health issues I didn't get to use it that much,...now going to manual equiv.

Would like to let it go for $650.00 plus shipping,....prefer PayPal payment if possible.
I'll double box it,..you pay for how you'd like it shipped with insurance from 04652 zip. Any questions PM me here and I'll get back to you.

I would keep the lens and set to manual focus
I learned with a manual Yashica "A" not even an internal light meter. However I had no problem switching to auto focus for all but macro.

It's a great lens. I would agree with above comment, use it in manual mode or learn to use it in auto focus. It's worth the effort to learn how to use that lens.

I have had no problems using this 20mm on its manual mode setting,....(see attached images)..
am just not not interested in auto focus at all.
I do have my eye on a strictly manual focus replacement lens that interests me,....and wanted to throw this 20mm out to the hog community first.
Heck,...I don't even have a smart phone, have never used an ATM machine,..am a less is more kinda person.
I'm not anti tech,...I build my own computers.

Thanks all for your comments though,...muchly appreciated.

That appears to be an awesome lens and your pics are beautiful. Certainly gives me GAS for my upcoming trip to Italy but l'm afraid I've already spent too much on camera gear. I'm 69 and started in the 1967-1968 school year with a Yashica and it was 1982 before I got my first SLR, a Nikon FE. I really enjoyed that camera and I love my current Nikon D750. I enjoy it's auto focus and low light capabilities among other features. f/1.8 would really be nice.

I wish you well on the disposition of your very fine lens.
