6.5/10 condition lens (has fungus and only be able to shot at wide open, and converted to Sony mirrorless E-mount).

Serial Number : 26027

Let's put it out there!

What ?!?! A one aperture lens that has fungus going for $3,800?!?!?

Yes, before we go crazy slamming crazy prices, let's learn a bit more about this lens. One good thing about this lens is that the aperture is probably one of the biggest you can find in the world! f0.95 ! What does it means? In more general terms it means some yummy Bokeh! (seriously yummy Bokeh) See Paul Marbrook's page on some sample photo. Plus I did some research at the moment you can only buy these lens on eBay for no less than $5,500, see here. 

There is a photo of Robert Pattinson in “Twilight” 2014. Sony A7R, Canon 50mm f/0.95 Dream Lens @ wide open! see here

" Introducing my new Sony A7 mirrorless full frame camera complete with the legendary Canon 50mm f/0.95 lens. The unique thing about this combo is that up until the Sony A7 and A7R there was only one choice to use this lens on a full frame camera and that was the Leica M240. You cannot mount the lens on a mirrored DSLR due to the distance between sensor and back of the lens.

This is a GAME CHANGER..." a review by Paul Marbrook read more here.

"The Canon 50mm f/0.95 was introduced by Canon in 1961. According to the Canon online camera museum, “It had the largest aperture in the world for photographic lenses available in the market at the time.” It is affectionately known as the Canon “Dream Lens.” Today, the Dream Lens has become one of the most well known and coveted lenses of its era...

At F/0.95: There is apparent softness upon first impressions. At wide open the bokeh is most dramatic, as expected and makes up for any impression of softness. Upon closer inspection on a properly focused image, it is actually sharp.

The DOF is razor thin at f/0.95 and focussing errors may account for at least some of the softness people complain about..."
