Recently this lens has been widely available on eBay NIB with hood for less than $100 (USD). I picked one up for $80 last week and upon inspection it seemed perfectly fine to me. I know this is not the best of the best Contax N lenses, but even so, why is it avialable for comparatively little money Question

I'll be having this one converted by Conurus once their backlog clears. I'll compare it to my 24-85 an see how it does.

Can someone give some hints on how good/bad this lens is, and if it's worth the converting?
