SMC M-55mm f/1:1.4 MF lens

I was down in Florida over the weekend and picked up a 50mm f/1.4 lens at a pawn shop. I've gone over it thoroughly and it appears to be in very good condition. No scratches on the front or back glass. No haze or fungus and no apparent dust inside.

Can someone give me an idea what this lens is actually worth?

I'd guess probably $80 ~ $100. What did you give for it?

M 50mm f1.4

Then you have done exceptionally well. The previous poster is right...these go like hotcakes on ebay.

It is a cracking lens....superb optics; very fast; and more solid construction than you will find on most lenses today. This 25 year old beauty will serve you very well.

Now lets see some pictures with it.
