Yes I noticed too the mount picture doesn't match, hope the seller come clean of it soon.

Really? Listed as out of production on Bojidar's page...
For one thing Bojidar hasn't updated his page in nearly 2 years.

Anybody know what a new one is selling for? Nice to know the price has bounced back.
In Japan, Hong Kong etc. the new AIV units were selling for ~ $950 USD. Occasionally, some of the new ones were showing up on ebay.

It appears it was out of production, then came into production again. It has been discussed on the forum quite a lot.

Edit: I'm not sure how related it is, but the same thing happened with the F-1.7x autofocus adapter (converter). All of a sudden after being out of production and out of stock for a long time, there appeared "assembled in Vietnam" copies.
Interesting. I've never been able to figure out how to know exactly which lenses are still being produced. If I've just missed some master list somewhere, let me know

Maybe I am out of touch but that that price seems high to me.
That is not a "Buy It Now" price, that is only an opening bid with still three days left. It's going to be a lot higher by then, especially now that everyone's talking about it!

The eBay seller noted by the OP has confirmed that the picture is of the incorrect lens, and is looking for the correct one to post. He'll have to hurry, though, because the auction finish isn't too far away.

Cheers

The seller just posted a link, but I guess doesn't know how to embed it so it shows up as an image in the body of his description.



Looks to be in good shape! Good luck Aussies! Great lens!

No that is a manual focus 50mm 1.2 lens. Commonly called KA mount. It would have been a prime lens in its time and is still a quality lens.

Maybe I am out of touch but that that price seems high to me.
I don't know what $300 AUD translates to but the last A50 f1:1.2 I watched, went for US$575, Used.

The Aussie dollar and the US dollar are basically at parity at the moment - won't be for long though, with the Qld floods devastating the economy. GDP, and thus inflation and the dollar, will all be affected soon...

But all the best for the auction guys.

Congrats on the winning bid.
Now go out there and get some thin DoF shots with this fine piece of glassware.
And post them here for kicks...
