I've been watching that one since he first listed it. It has gone un-sold twice (or maybe more) and he keeps dropping the price. Hard to tell if the "rim dent" has done significant damage.

Not a lens, but an awfully good deal on a Vivitar Bellows. I was going to buy it but figured I'd send the link to see if anyone else could use this bellows:

Ray, its been a long time since I've been on the site but its great to see you "STILL LEADING" the way for cheap lenses that people can buy for low prices that are fantastic alternative lenses to high cost lenses usually people can't see the difference or not worth the cost for there applications.......Not every one needs,,(but would love to have!!) a Rodenstock APO Radagon D 75mm macro lense........there are many a fine lens to start an education in Macro and coin photography without investing thousands in educational costs of equipment just to shoot a few coins !
Drive on soldier!!

Here's an excellent deal on a nice objective for coins. The Nikon MPlan 5 is a step up from the M5 primarily in that it has a longer working distance due to the 210mm extension rather than the normal 160mm of the M5. I can't vouch for seller or condition, but if all works out it's quite a nice objective for a great price.

Been a while since I posted an El-Cheapo, but this one really deserves the attention. I will also cross-post it to the <$400 setup, since it fills a niche there in place of the recommended Nikon M5, which is often hard to find. This one actually might be a bit better for coins due to the longer working distance, though the M5 is tough to beat for image quality.

This M5 LWD objective is probably of Chinese origin, but one of the best 4x objectives I own was made in China, so I am origin-agnostic:

At $27.50, you really can't go wrong with this one.
