    Hey folks,

    I'm selling my Fujinon 18-85mm T2.0 Premier zoom.

    There's not much I can say about this lens that hasn't already been said - it's undoubtedly the best zoom lens I've ever used and arguably the best zoom lens on the market. It's unbelievably fast, perfectly square, and dead-nuts sharp even at T2.0. It's a box of primes in one zoom. It has such even field illumination that it generally looks about half a stop brighter than other T2.0 lenses at wide open.

    I purchased this lens after working with one on Furious 7. It was so much brighter and more aesthetically pleasing than literally any other lens we used on that movie during our night work that I immediately bought one upon project completion.

    Duclos Lenses has recently announced their 1.7x expander which was on display at NAB this year in the Fujinon booth. This adapter makes the lens beautifully cover a Monstro VV in 8K should you require additional coverage.

    This lens was purchased new from Fujinon and has spent its time being serviced by Panavision. Condition is as you'd expect a young lens used by professionals - without damage and with only the usual handling marks and wear.

    The lens will ship as delivered in its original case.

    The lens is currently available new for $87,300 USD from all the usual major distributors.

    Asking $52,000 USD.

    Looking at prices it seems that I may be a bit high against the current market. So consider me open to offers - I'm interested in moving the lens. Thanks all.

    I'll echo Brook's notes about this lens - it's amazeballs. If I had the coin...

    Cheers - #19

    Correct - my price is below theirs and is open to negotiation.
