Ebay - transparent fa28-80

I saw this on sale in ebay...

This is just a collector edition. Not that it is particularly good in producing great photo quality, right?

You should ask Jim King over at dpr if he has this. Being a collector of Pentax glass, he may just want it. To me a $1000 is a bit much for a $60 lens, but to Jim, it mght be priceless...

I see. I was wondering why it would cost something more than 1000 US for a lens just being "transparent".

Quite interesting. I will see how much it ends up being sold for ...
