This sale is for a good overall condition genuine – and fully working – Bronica GS-1 100mm f3.5 standard lens – suitable only for the Bronica GS-1 camera. Please note that it cannot be used with other Bronica cameras.
This lens is in perfect working order despite its rather batterred appearance. It still works exactly as it should. There is slight fungus at very edge at the front but not in the light path (under “PG” on the front ring) so there is no effect on your images. More obviously there is balsam separation towards the rear of the lens (see photos) but this is only visible under bright light – in this case direct sun. The centre of the lens is completely clear, so anything from about f5.6 and smaller will be completely unaffected, and as you can’t see anything looking directly through the lens it is very unlikely to have any noticeable effect even with the lens wide open.
Otherwise this lens is optically ok, and the shutter works perfectly. There are obviously two big dents in the filter ring – so you can’t fit filters.
So, not a great lens, but it works – and if you are looking for a cheap but very usable lens for your GS-1 then here it is.
