Dear Dawg,

Did you check if you got the same lens number that was post at eBay...#:3809414?:?

Now I found an a "Rare" 50mm SMC manual focus lens...but expensive!

Thanks a lot!

Peace,

Yes that is the number of the lens sent to me Alex...The one you are looking at is a manual f/1.2 50mm lens and it is way over priced for even a rare lens of that type. Folks are paying outrageous prices for some of these as they aren't made anymore and they are getting rare. If you have one or can get one hang on to it as it is worth quite a bit. The one I got is a screw mount...The one you are looking at is a K-mount and mine is a Super Takumar which is 5-10 years older than the one you are looking at. The 50mm 1.4 Super Takumars are going for 45-80 dollars according to the condition they are in. Mine had a smudge they thought was fungus but I am almost positive it was just where someone removed the rear lens group and left a fingerprint smudge inside. That 50mm F1.2 should be priced around 200 dollars to be more correct in the price but you get what the market is willing to pay... Now days that is usually wayyy more than the lens is really worth....My and your f/1.4's are plenty fast and didn't cost us that much...I'm very happy with mine and I'm sure you are with your's. LOL

Alex I've now tried the super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 I bought and it works just fine...My next lens will be a Super Zoom of some kind like the Sigma 50-500. Got to save my money for that right now, Later I want to collect the 50mm 1:1.4 lenses from pentax in all it's forms, from screw mount to full auto! That will happen over many years. Thanks my friend for the concern!
