I used to see photographs labeled takumar 50mm/55mm 1.2 featured in Tommy Oshima's flickr page. I first thought it was a mistake but he put the tags in a lot of the photographs so it might have been real. He's taken down the equipment tags though. Am still not certain it exists.
There is no f1.2 Takumar. You will have better luck finding the Lochness Monster.

There were a few Tomioka f/1.2 lenses recently on the bay ... I was watching them as well. Good thing i have no money at the moment ... they ended up going for about $320-ishUS

I keep seeing more Porst f/1.2's floating around as well.

Looking at the f/1.2 thread though ... pretty much all of the images from the Porst/Rokinon/Chinon/Cosina lenses are still nothing short of breathtaking. They may not quite be on par with the K/A series Pentax 50mm version ... but there are still some special images from them.

Either way ... if you can pick up any of the f/1.2 lenses in good nick ... it'll be a special lens.
