A-50mm f/.1.4. The deal of the week. I think.

I just bought an A-50mm f/1.4 lens from a seller on Craigslist.

The seller claims that the lens is in good condition. There was no photo, so I took his word for it.

I paid, delivered to me in Savannah, GA...... $40


Usually, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But, I figured for $40, I'd take a chance.


Wow!!!!!!

Well, for 40 bucks I guess you couldn't go wrong. That's not a bad lens if it's as good as it sounds.

Wow, this was surely a find.

Except for a couple of small scatches on the body of the lens, this thing is like brand new. Clean, clear, perfect glass.

What a great score Ed! What I would like would be a K 85mm F1.8 for about $100.
