The second version of the Elmarit 180mm has 600g reduced weight compared to the first version. Furthermore it has a better performance and handling. It still is a 5 elements 4 groups design but with thinner elements that have different spacings within the lens. ROM version from serial number 3786360 on. At maximum aperture the overall contrast is medium which covers the field evenly.
The lens is in a technical good condition. There are some signs of usage, which are only on the outside of the lenshood (as shown on the last picture).
Inside the optical system is some age-related dust, which will not show or affect your image quality.
The aperture blades open and close smoothly.
The lens has ROM contacts.
The Elmarit was service checked in May 2021.
