Canon 50mm f1.8 Mk1 lens

Hi,
Any Canon EOS users out there ?
If so, this is a great opportunity to acquire a mint condition, 50mm f1.8 lens.
The lens is in great shape, no marks on either the lens body or the glass. It's fungus free, focus is really fast and accurate and I've taken comparison shots between this lens and my 50mm f1.4 USM and I can't really tell the difference.
Now, the Mk1 is of superior build quality to the Mk2 not least of all because is is fitted with a metal mount. The Mk2 has a plastic mount which may wear out over time. This example of the Mk1 has a mount which seems to have better tolerances than on my 24-105 f4L, it feels much tighter on the camera.
I'll be putting it on ebay in a couple of weeks but I thought I'd give anyone on here a chance to buy it.
Price is £100 including excellent packaging and insured post.
