The Nikkor 85/2 I bought for US$9 and modded for a tight PK fit makes me very happy.

Nyah nyah nyah.

Hey Douglas, do you happen to know how the Nikkor optical formula compares to the Pentax?

that was from 2 months ago, and info was not certain then if I remember correctly.

I wish it was 500.... they would sell triple the amount they will now at its current presumed asking price garunteed.
even if it's $700, it will still sell like crazy.

That doesn't look like a 45 year old lens at all-- looks like a little girl!

Seriously though, perfect shot.

Great lens! I sold mine and regretted it instantly, then found a 40-2. Wish I'd had them both at once to compare!
