Just before I made this listing I popped out to take a few photographs with the lens to show what it can do.
Below is my local church which I took with a Sigma 15mm lens, the subsequent photographs are with the Sigma XQ Mirror Ultra 500mm standing on the same spot showing its capabilities
The above shots are all full frame not blow-ups ~ they were taken with a Fuji S2 Pro attached to the lenses on a Nikon T2 adapter.
This lens was brought over from America in the 1980's and has spent quite some time later in a loft. The outside is very good condition however it would probably benefit from a good cleaning on the inside.
I'm informed these lenses were used by the Met police for surveillance purposes in the 1980's. Great lens for numerous photographic pursuits.
Because of its age dating from the 1960's, I am selling AS IS ~ NO RETURNS!
