Heavy as hell , but great color edition and super sharp.

I too own this lens. It is heavy as can be; beautiful images in my opinion. . And makes me work a bit since it is non-cup fully manually focused lens. I would love to figure out when mine was manufactured, based on serial number. Mine is not a USA lens; I believe it was originally sold in Japan. Some interesting reviews out on this lens. I learned about it from Hudson Henry who has one and traveled with it.
