Hi everyone!

I purchased a used 105mm lens and it turns out that there's no manual with it. Can anyone give me some info on this lens, particularly what the 'limit/full' switch is all about? Possibly someone has a website to direct me to?

Thanks a bunch!

Great lens!! It's extremely sharp and well built. The limit switch allows the user to choose whether to allow the lens to focus through it's entire range (closest focus distance to infinity) or just on the far end (which is about 1/2 meter to infinity). You would engage the limit switch when using this lens for non macro work to speed auto focus.
