Strange advertising?...kevin....the 85 1.9 man?

Had a look at kevins Cameras website today relative to Pentax screwmount, & found that he had a total of 46 lenses listed, but 28 of these were 85mm, only one being a1.8, all the rest were 1.9, so out of a total 46 lens listed 27 were 85mm 1.9!!!.....seems a waste of advertising space to me.....surely he must have other lenses he could show to attract more interest?
Anyone seen his actual shop.....what sort of a range does he actually have?
Cheers, Pickles.

Interesting- the F1.9 is otherwise a great lens!

What kind of prices were they throwing out for the 85 1.9?

This kind of supports what I said in another thread, about how the 85 1.9s are pretty common but somehow getting overpriced, compared to the 35 2s which you seldom see for sale.
